Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking affects the workplace more than we know. Domestic violence in all its many forms spills over to the workplace. It impacts, absenteeism, turnover, higher health costs and workplace productivity. When you include sexual assault and stalking, the impact can be devastating. In a comprehensive focus, this HR Compliance Officer has vast experience in the world of domestic violence working as a sexual assault prevention unit and promoted to a Court based victim advocacy unit in the Bronx Criminal and Family Courts in Bronx, NY. In this former career, Margie Faulk claims that working as the senior crisis advocate for a rape crisis volunteer unit and a criminal court advocacy unit, is what propelled her to the world of human resources and later workplace compliance. This experience is what makes this training more impactful and more inspirational.

Although it appeared as a great transition, it was difficult to come to terms with how the laws in the late 1999 and early 2000 did little to impact domestic violence seeping into the workplace. No doubt, the laws and regulation noticed and took action on making domestic violence in the workplace something to address. Although it took longer than expected, the laws did take action in developing protections for employees impacted by domestic violence in their personal lives and impact in the workplace with relationships developing in the workplace.

Course Objective:

Domestic violence in the workplace has taken many lives since the late 1990s throughout the nation and across all industries. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that domestic violence costs companies $5.4 billion annually. Many incidents have been in the media, newspapers, in the workplace and several industries. Domestic violence surpasses any socio-economic levels and industries. With the Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking regulations instituted, it isn’t a wonder that many organizations are not aware of these regulations. Moreover, the regulations started in early 2000 and the new Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Stalking Notification regulation effective this year in July 2017, makes this notification obligation one of the risks for organizations in terms of compliance.

Training of company leaders, Managers/supervisors, HR professionals and other professionals involved with employees is ever more critical. These regulations do not need to be hidden. In fact, many companies have been charged with violations when they became aware of these incidents and did nothing to address it. Needless to say, these cases are not easy to handle. HR professionals (albeit my experience as a former therapist for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking victims) are not trained in handling these cases. How many HR professional (except for me) start any review of termination with “Does the employee have weapons or has been in any domestic violence situations”?

Although this question has taken by surprise all the CEO’s and C-Suite professionals I have worked with by surprise, they have appreciated the attention to this detail when there is a volatile termination or incident. If the incidents in question take a turn for the worse or decision to terminate, know that you are taking away the person’s livelihood and therefore makes this a volatile situation. If there are incidents of violence and threats, I do not want any HR or Compliance professionals (or other employees) to handle this without the tools they need to ensure safety and a safe outcome.

Many companies will not provide these critical tools because they are unaware, don’t believe there are any risks or they overlook the seriousness of this situation. This webinar will give you the guidance you need to become aware of the critical factors of workplace domestic violence situations or workplace relationships that have exploded in to violent situations. Learn how to access your Employee Assistance Program as a partner when you suspect or an employee has disclosed domestic violence, sexual assault and/or stalking incidents.

This webinar will provide the resources needed to comply with the Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Stalking leave regulations and the new notification laws.
