FREE WORKPLACE SEMINAR – The Domestic Violence – Victim’s Protection Act

17th June 2021 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM


When: 10.30am – 12.30pm, Thursday 17 June 2021
Where: Bayleys Whanganui, 158 Wicksteed Street, Whanganui
Cost:  Free of charge with light lunch provided

Domestic violence can impact on a team’s ability to bring their best selves to work, affecting productivity and the workplace environment.

Together with Jigsaw Whanganui and our sponsors, we invite you to join this seminar with Anna Campbell.  The Domestic Violence – Victim’s Protection Act adds legal protections in the workplace for people affected by domestic violence.

The session will support workplaces to understand their obligations under the Act and also how to respond affirmatively; with particular focus on how domestic violence can and does, affect the world of work, and how businesses and managers can help by recognising, responding to and addressing the impacts of domestic violence on the employee.

Supporting an employee in these circumstances offsets the current hidden costs of domestic violence, such as disruption on the job and lost days of work. Workplaces will benefit greatly if they engage in supporting the individual experiencing domestic violence.  Research clearly shows productivity increases in the workplace when employees feel safe and listened to.

We encourage you to attend this seminar at 10.30am on Thursday 17 June,
followed by a complimentary lunch at 12.30pm.

RSVP before 4pm Wednesday 16 June.  Bookings are essential for catering purposes.

Please share this invitation with others who you think would like to attend this seminar.
