Awareness of mental health and how it can affect the workplace has come on in leaps and bounds in the past decade. Yet, domestic abuse and its impacts in work is still in the foothills, perhaps the last workplace taboo.
However, increasing understanding of this crime means responsible employers are now ready to take action and shine a light on the far-reaching consequences of this abuse. By definition, domestic abuse may happen at home behind closed doors, but it has an impact on the working lives of those living with an abusive partner.
All employers have a duty of care and a legal responsibility to provide a safe and supportive work environment.
