So let's say that you have your own company. You find out that one of your employees has been accused by his wife of beating her. In fact, she has called the police several times with this allegation. The problem is, the police came and went on multiple occasions without making an arrest. Does it matter that the police never made an arrest? Does it matter that the husband denies ever touching his wife? In today's climate, I think the employer has no choice but to fire the husband. That's not likely to improve their home situation, particularly if they have children, but at least outsiders won't be able to accuse the owner of "protecting" and/or "enabling" an "abuser". Right? While it might be better for that troubled family to get counseling and to see if the marriage can be saved or, at least, help them to make a peaceful and amicable divorce so that the husband doesn't have to lose his job, so as not to eliminate what might be the family's only source of income. But again, in today's climate, that's a risky thing to do because much of the public will excoriate the owner if things go south. I think the answer is that the owner, at the first claim of any domestic abuse, has to fire the employee and let that couple and their children figure it out on their own and with, possibly, little to no income. It's what the public demands. Your thoughts?
