Risks, considerations and conversations about safety when domestic and family violence comes to work

September 2, 2020, 1:30pm-2:30pm

Domestic and family violence (DFV) affects a wide range of people in not only their home and personal lives, but can also have far-reaching impacts on their social and economic participation, including at work.

This presentation, jointly hosted by Community Legal Centres Queensland and The Services Union, provides an overview of some of the key safety concerns workplaces should be aware of when an employee is experiencing DFV.

Using a workplace health and safety lens, Kerriann Dear from Community Legal Centres Queensland provides some practical steps that workplaces can take to help manage risk and keep employees safer. There will be a particular focus on issues associated when employees are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This session follows on from our 2019 webinar, Responding to domestic violence in the workplace, presented as part of our DV Capacity Building for CLCs Program. We encourage you to view this recording as important pre-learning.
