New Podcast Series for Supporting Employees Experiencing Domestic and Family Violence
We're thrilled to announce the launch of the new podcast series: ‘Small Business, Big Impact: How to Support Employees Experiencing Domestic and Family Violence.’
With the generous support of the Federal Government, this ten 10-min podcast series has been tailor-made for small business owners. In light of the recent legislation that came into effect on 1 August 2023, stipulating the provision of up to ten days of paid domestic and family violence leave to employees across Australia, questions might arise about how to navigate this important aspect of workplace support.
Hosted by Gretel Killeen, the 'Small Business, Big Impact' podcast aims to shed light on crucial questions that small business owners might have about domestic violence. The podcast comprehensively covers essential topics ranging from explaining the dynamics of domestic and family violence, recognising signs if your employees are experiencing it, to comprehending the responsibilities entailed as an employer in these situations.
Domestic and family violence is an issue that affects countless lives, and as business owners, it's essential to be informed and equipped to support our employees through challenging times. By providing paid leave and fostering a safe and understanding work environment, we can make a significant positive impact in their lives.
