14. I guess I could understand if the employee stayed in

the abusive relationship and the spouse continued to come to your business and disrupt. If I owned a business, though, that would only happen once, because I would get a restraining order against that spouse and simply call the cops if they ever stepped on my property again.

I've had friends over the years who I've helped to leave abusive relationships, and most of them went back to the abuser. I'm leery about helping anyone ever again. I've put myself in danger by getting involved in those situations, and usually it turned out that it was a waste of time and effort. I don't have a lot of sympathy for people who continue to stay with an abuser when they can get out of the situation.

That article left out a lot of information that's essential in determining what happened there. Each one of these cases is different and must be judged on its own. I guess my initial response was a bit hasty, but I think in most cases companies shouldn't penalize someone for something a crazed lover does.
