    Unfortunately, the line of thinking that the abuser's career must be protected at all costs is mirrored by many individuals within our criminal justice and other systems. And it deserves more than just a passing comment in my opinion which I don't have tie to do at the moment but I hope to get back to your thread this evening.

    There are police, courts, social agencies churches, friends, families, and neighbors who might be in a position to assess and deal with these accusations. It has nothing to do with his job performance. Until it does, the emp.oyer should stay out of it.

    The company I worked for had zero tolerance for employee's "convicted" for domestic violence and would fire them.

    Notice the operative word is "convicted", not alleged or arrested. ... :cool:

    But then the employer is accused of protecting and enabling an abuser and then people may boycott the business.

    In the court of public opinion, an accusation equals a conviction. At least it seems that way.

    Why does an employer need to fire his/her employee over allegations? An allegation is just that.

    To protect their business from being accused of protecting or enabling an alleged abuser.

    I know a lot of people who can easily pass a multitude of background checks but when it comes to things like integrity, honesty and ethical behavior they leave a lot to be desired. Physically abusing, threatening, stalking or otherwise terrorizing a spouse, significant other or other family member isn't just bad or unethical, it's criminal so much that it has it's own set of laws (domestic violence) to address this scourge. If a person is abusing someone and lies about it, what makes you think they won't lie to their employer as well?

    Depending on the job, these deficiences do impact the individual's ability to do their job, at least for me it would.
