Everybody’s Business supports workplaces to create a safe and respectful culture.
Our prevention specialists and trained facilitators will work with your organisation to support organisational readiness and provide training.
Everybody’s Business is based on current evidence and best practice, and tailored to the needs and strategic goals of each organisation.
All businesses need to prepare for the upcoming legislation changes in February 2023 (large organisations) and August 2023 (small businesses) which include the provision of 10 days paid domestic and family violence leave. If staff talk about their experiences of domestic and family violence with their managers or colleagues, employers need to be prepared to respond sensitively and safely.
Do you know what your duty of care is, what signs to look out for, what to say, or where to refer people to get the support they need?
Are your processes ready for the coming changes? Who will approve the leave? What information will be on the payslip? What evidence will a staff member be required to provide to access the leave? How will you manage leave processes to ensure staff safety?
