Employer Resource

The effects of domestic violence may extend outside the home and spill over into the workplace. When they do, the safety of a workplace can be compromised. An abusive partner or family member might make harassing phone calls, stalk a victim at work, or make threats that put the victim and the workplace at risk. Employers and workers may be aware that someone in their workplace is experiencing domestic violence, but they may not have the knowledge or tools to address the situation.

The resources on this page comprise our online “tool kit” and are available to help employers understand their obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, recognize the signs of domestic violence, and take action to help keep workers and workplaces safe.
