Domestic violence eNote
Ever thought that domestic isn't just a home life issue? Well, it isn't. It's a workplace issue and therefore a union issue too. This eNote aims to raise awareness among union reps about domestic violence; make them understand the role they need to play in the process and encourage them to put together a suitable workplace policy to deal with such issues.
This eNote will:
- explain what domestic violence is and its impact at home and in the workplace
- explain the role of the rep in supporting members who disclose that they are survivors of domestic violence
- offer guidance on how to develop workplace policies and agreements on domestic violence
