The launch of the Employer’s Guidelines on Domestic Abuse takes place on 8th March in the Radisson Hotel, Ennis Road, Limerick at 3.30pm.
In an increasingly competitive economy and tight labour market every cost needs to be identified. It is important that the cost of domestic abuse for businesses is not overlooked by employers.
The effects of domestic abuse on employees may not only have a significant financial impact on the employer, but may also result in high absenteeism and impact directly on work performance.
Domestic Abuse is defined as threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, verbal, sexual, financial or emotional) inflicted on one person by another where they are, or have been, intimate partners or family members. Domestic abuse is a pervasive issue not confined by class, age, ethnicity, race, sexuality, religion or disability.
The ‘Employers Guidelines on Domestic Abuse’ is a brief reference guide to support Human Resource Managers and others with responsibility for employees’ welfare. The booklet will enable employers to:
RECOGNISE domestic abuse- RESPOND appropriately- REFER the employee to services and supports.
