I am an employer of an abuse victim. How can I protect my business from the abuser?
Colorado law authorizes an employer to apply for a protection order in the name of the business if the employer believes that the employees or customers are in immediate danger from the abuser1 (for example, the employee is being stalked and the stalker comes to the workplace, scaring the employee and others). If the judge or magistrate finds that the employees or customers of a business are in immediate danger, s/he can grant the order to keep the abuser away from the business.1
