Family and domestic violence (FDV) is a critical national health and welfare issue. It is also an often underappreciated workplace issue, with the Australian Human Rights Commission estimating that violence from an intimate partner affects one in six Australian female workers; one in five of these women say the violence continues at work.
Alarmingly, recent research indicates that Google searches related to FDV have increased by 75% since the first recorded COVID-19 case in Australia, and Monash University research has indicated that the number of first-time family violence reports had gone up for 42% per cent of individuals surveyed since the COVID-19 pandemic commenced.
Now, more than ever, it is imperative that your workplaces understand the challenges that an employee’s exposure to FDV can present for them as an individual, as well as to the broader workforce, and to appreciate how to support employees experiencing FDV while also managing legal risk.
