Bronx and city employers learn how to help workers deal with domestic violence

Bronx and city human resource managers took part in a training program Tuesday that is aimed at giving them the tools needed to help workers dealing with domestic violence.

The program is part of a new initiative by the mayor's office and other organizations. The hope is to help combat domestic violence, which affects people in both the workplace and at home. Domestic violence can lead to absenteeism in the workplace as well as low productivity and turnover.

A representative from the mayor's office says the program will be good for all businesses in the Bronx and citywide.
