This guidance has been developed by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in Wales, with support from the CIPD.

The guidance includes practical tips for employers to recognise when an employee may be affected by domestic abuse. It explains how to respond and offer support, and provides details of organisations to turn to for further information and advice.

Employers may wish to develop a workplace policy to raise awareness of domestic abuse, identify responsibilities and ensure provision, support and safety. The guidance sets out key elements that could be included in an effective policy.
