Domestic Abuse: An Employment and HR Issue

June 6 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Cost: £50 per statutory sector delegate/£35 per voluntary sector delegate

Domestic abuse crosses social space. This means it comes to work with both the victim/survivor and it can impact on a woman’s working life. Employers thus have a role to play in supporting women with the issue.

By the end of the session delegates will:

• Understand the impact of domestic abuse on individuals and workplaces
• Understand how supporting/working alongside a victim/survivor may impact on colleagues and managers.
• Recognise the signs and symptoms of someone experiencing domestic abuse.
• Feel more confident in supporting an employee/colleague experiencing Domestic Abuse in the work place.
• Feel more confident in asking the question and responding effectively to a disclosure.
• Increase awareness of how to implement supportive response to domestic abuse

The facilitator: Heather Williams was manager at Ross-shire Women’s Aid for 8 years and was a member of the Highland Violence Against Women Partnership. During this time she was involved in the development and delivery of aside variety of violence against women training to multi-agency professionals.
