Settlement in NY domestic violence-employment case

This story made me so mad. What on earth was Bon-Ton doing putting a woman employee who was being threatened by her husband on leave????

So now Bon-Ton is “changing its policy”???? What is wrong with this place?

Too many question marks? OK, I’ll stop. But read it:

Bon-Ton put an employee threatened by her husband on leave. In a settlement, it agreed to change its policy to allow such employees to stay on the job.

And notice that the Times headline pointed out that this settlement “may set broader precedent,” which I read as: it may establish new laws.
