Call for evidence on workplace support for those affected by domestic abuse

Close date: 9 September 2020

The Government launches a call for evidence on how employers can help staff in the workplace who are affected by domestic abuse. The review looks at what support can be offered at work, for example more flexible working and unplanned leave, as well as financial support in the form of advances of salary or, to prevent financial coercion, paying the victim's wages into a different bank account. The call for evidence also seeks to understand: the practical circumstances that arise in relation to domestic abuse and work; what is possible within the existing framework; what does current best practice look like; and what is the potential to do more.
