In April 2016, leaders from many different sectors of the community decided that businesses operating in and around Cardinia Shire would benefit in having a simple guide that would support them with their efforts to provide safe environments for staff who may be experiencing family violence.
Family violence is not just physical abuse.
Family violence includes sexual, emotional, verbal, financial, social, spiritual abuse - fear and intimidation. Essentially, it is when one person uses power and control over another person that removes their human right to feel safe at work, at home or in the community.
Employers are legally responsible for the health and wellbeing of their staff and when businesses work with the broader community our children will have a better future.
Violence always starts with disrespect.
