SWA UPDATES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE GUIDANCE

If a perpetrator threatens, intimidates, or commits violence against a partner or family member at their workplace, including when working remotely, it becomes a workplace health and safety risk.

Safe Work Australia (SWA) has updated its information sheet on family and domestic violence at work to align with changes in the Fair Work Act 2009 around managing the risks associated with domestic violence in the workplace.

The information sheet offers guidance to businesses on creating a safe environment for employees and where to find further assistance.

Check out the information sheet – Family and domestic violence at work and see the Fair Work Ombudsman’s website for information on changes to the Fair Work Act.
