Managing and supporting employees experiencing domestic abuse

Domestic abuse can destroy lives, leaving physical and emotional scars. Survivors can find themselves isolated from friends and family and lose their independence. It can take many forms: it is not just physical abuse; it can also be financial, emotional and psychological.

Most survivors are women with a male perpetrator, but it’s important to remember
that men can also be subject to abuse, and domestic abuse can happen in same-sex relationships. A key learning in producing this guidance is that we should not make assumptions about who the abuser may be or what a survivor may be experiencing, but to listen and respond in a supportive way.
