Domestic violence clearly impacts the motivation, productivity, and morale of employees, and as business owners and leaders, there are things you can, should, and must do to support your team. This 50-minute workshop covered the following:

  • What should employers think about how domestic violence (DV) affects their workplace?
  • What laws are implicated in DV scenarios?

  • How do you address remote working employees in areas of threats and vulnerabilities?
  • How do you keep your workplace safe?
