Guidance for Employers on Developing a Workplace Policy on Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse

It is important that employers of all sizes across Northern Ireland know what to do to support an employee who have been affected by, or are at risk of, domestic and sexual violence and abuse.

Guidance has been developed in partnership with trade unions and statutory, voluntary and community sector.  The guidance provides a checklist of the key areas to include in a Workplace Policy.  It also includes information on practical measures to support employees.  Support in the workplace is often about being aware and sign posting employees to organisations that provide specialist support.
