Domestic violence is a workplace issue and the SDA can help. If you are experiencing domestic violence, it can affect your ability to work effectively and may also put yourself and your co-workers in danger in the workplace.

Is domestic or family violence affecting:

–          your ability to get to work on time?

–          your performance at work?

–          your safety and/or safety of co-workers?

–          your attendance at work?

–          your ability to juggle work and family responsibilities?

How can the SDA help?

If you, or a family member you are supporting, are experiencing domestic violence and it is impacting on your work, the SDA can:

–          help you gain information about and access your entitlements;

–          assist you in negotiating flexible working arrangements;

–          speak to management on your behalf about the impact of domestic violence at work;

–          assist in developing a safety action plan with your employer if necessary
