The qualitative empirical phenomenological study investigates the best practices, if any, which were used in the development of a domestic violence in the workplace policy, program, or protocol. The study further investigates how the organization protects a working victim through the lens of the senior human resource executive. This is the first study to include a senior level human resource perspective across multiple industries. The industries include manufacturing/disposable goods, partially state funded insurance agency, insurance, retail, warehouse/distribution/logistics, manufacturing, utility broker, technology-outsourcing services, healthcare, and non-profit healthcare. The study is also the first study to obtain an organizational viewpoint as presented through the lens of a senior human resource executive. The study took place in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky. The study results indicate several themes developed indicating both external and internal best practices were used in the development of organizational protection from domestic violence in the workplace. The themes included: safety and security, employees, workplace violence policies, employee assistance programs (EAP), law enforcement and training. The study results also included several outliners, which lead to new areas of discovery. The outliners include safe rooms, Vessa Laws, and medical teams. The findings indicate as the organizations viewpoint changes the gap between the way a working victims views the organization response is narrowed.
