Assistance in Developing an evaluation framework for the introduction of domestic violence clauses into industrial awards and agreements

This project developed an evaluation and monitoring framework for the Domestic Violence Workplace Rights and Entitlements project, conducted by the Australian Domestic and Family Violence Clearinghouse and funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR).

The goal of the project is to reduce the impact of family violence on working women by achieving better workplace rights that support them to stay safely in their jobs and in their homes. This is to be achieved by: briefing a broad range of unions and employers nationally on the issue of family violence as a workplace issue, the adoption of family violence provisions in enterprise agreements and other workplace instruments; developing with unions and employers a set of model workplace information and training resources for general staff, human resources personnel, union delegates and supervisors; producing model policies and safety plans to assist in the informed introduction of family violence clauses; and surveying union members to provide essential information on the impact of family violence, and enabling future monitoring of the outcomes of introducing family violence clauses and other instruments.
