Domestic Violence - What does it mean for your business?
or 6 weekly payments from $16.50 learn more
The thought that one for your employees is going through a period of abuse and violence is enough to make most employers run the opposite direction or turn on the blinkers. I understand why - it's difficult to contemplate if you've never experienced it and it feels uncomfortable to talk about it - however it is an epidemic in New Zealand with it costing businesses billions in lost revenue, loss of valuable employees and loss of quality production and time.
The Victims Protection Bill will be enacted on April 1st, 2019. It means employees have a right to take 10 days paid special leave and/or request a variation to their terms of employment for a short period of time when dealing with the fallout of domestic violence. Our 2 hour interactive workshop will answer many of your questions such as:
- Why is the new Victims Protection Bill necessary?
- But what does this mean to you as an employer?
- How much is this going to cost your business?
- What do you need in place to safe guard you and your employees?
- Where can you find additional support?
- What do I do if an employee discloses abuse to you or another member of staff?
Learn how to manage the process within your business, and take away valuable insights into how to safe guard you and your employees. This is poignant workshop that will help to start difficult conversations, and build relationships within your workplace.
