Does Melee Damage Reduction work on followers

I equipped my Templar with the legendary item "The Three-Hundreth Spear" which has 4% melee damage reduction.

However, in the Defense section under his Details tab, there is only Block Chance, Dodge Chance, Dmg reduction etc. No melee damage reduction @@"

So does this mean it doesn't work for followers? Ty in advance!

melee/ range reduction of damage isnt listed in follower stats sheet.
they benefit from it just the same though. there is just no listing to varify. but i have equipped similiar items/weapons etc on followers and notice the difference.
currently the enchantress on my new 60 barb has a 200+ LoH, 10% IAS 1.54 sword and she self heals quite a bit. and fires off her range auto attack at quite a fast pace.
her token has decent int , vitality , and 49% crit dmg.
i prefere her to live to keep her buffs up. when a follower dies, you lose their buff until the ressurect. like her armor and attack speed buff, the templars heal over time, regenerations of hatred/rage/spirit etc etc.
