This website was developed by a group of forward-thinking businesses before recent new law passed providing additional workplace support for family violence survivors. The research on this website remains relevant, as does the business leaders’ experience of the value of going the extra mile. Check out the research and support contacts at the end of this page to talk to those who have already walked the path you are setting out on.
Because of the law change our template policy and toolkit is now out of date. For updated information, visit [link to HRC page – the one that went up yesterday?]. Check out MBIE’s Workplace Policy Builder to develop a family violence policy that’s consistent with the new law. Shine’s Guidelines on Policy and Procedures are also free to download and they incorporate the new law.
