Civil Protection Orders employers and employees

OKAY HATED LAWYER, why do I care about this Civil Protection stuff for my employee?

As an employer, you want to know what criminal allegations are being thrown at your employee.  Although the statute[s] may say “civil,” the involved statutes are also in the criminal code.
