Domestic Violence Handout

BENEFITS

The duty to protect workers from violence in the workplace includes domestic or family violence, which can spill over into and impact the workplace—including both the targeted workers and their co-workers. So it’s important that you educate workers on domestic violence so they can recognize the signs and to encourage them to come forward and get help.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this handout on domestic violence for your jurisdiction’s OHS laws, your OHS program, any existing domestic violence policies and related HR policies and programs. Give it to all employees.
