According to the Vancouver Sun, BC is set to become the second province in Canada (after Ontario) to address domestic violence in the workplace. WorkSafeBC has been developing a handbook and online training resource that will help employers recognize the signs and symptoms of domestic abuse and better understand how to talk about it with a worker in a safe and supportive manner. The guidelines are the result of a special review panel on domestic violence convened by the chief coroner last spring.
