Why is it important for your business?

Statistics show that 2 out of 3 victims affected by domestic violence are in paid employment and 1 in 5 victims say the violence continued in the workplace. It is also proven that domestic violence effects productivity, attendance and punctuality which costs corporate and businesses $1.5 billion through direct costs such as administration, recruitment following staff over and training for new employees. It is in everyone’s best interest for the employer to have the correct support, skills and tools to support the employee. Learning to deal with issues in Domestic Violence is vital as people experiencing these issues can be vulnerable and the correct management skills are imperative.

As reported on the BOSCAR website, in 2016 there were 29,044 occasions of assault in  relation to domestic violence in NSW alone.

Domestic and family violence is a crime that takes many forms including emotional and psychological abuse, intimidation, harassment, stalking, physical and sexual assault, and can include animal abuse targeting pets, and damaging personal or joint property.

Domestic Violence is a social issue as it does not only effect the victim but also effects the   victims family and friends. This issue also causes a direct effect on missed work/school, medical bills, the cost of prosecuting/incarcerating perpetrators, funeral costs, children left without parents- these all affect society as a whole.
