Domestic and Family Violence Workplace Strategy

BNG NGO Services Online have released an information sheet of Domestic and Family Violence Workplace Strategy. 

Introduction

Domestic and family violence (DFV) is a serious workplace issue. It is in the interests of every organisation to ensure that they support staff affected by it, work to prevent DFV, and foster a culture of respect and gender equality in the workplace.

Organisations should document and communicate their commitment to preventing DFV, and implement strategies which reflect current trends in legislation, research and policy. This information sheet is a brief guide on the basics of developing a workplace DFV strategy, but is not comprehensive, nor a substitute for professional education and training for staff.
