How OPDV Can Help
Training and employee awareness are essential to addressing domestic violence in the workplace.
Domestic Violence and the Workplace TrainingThis is a one-day training offered to NYS employees. Preference is given to Agency/OPDV Liaisons and those providing information/service for employees in need of assistance.
The training will prepare staff to better understand the dynamics of domestic violence, identify possible signs and indicators of victimization, make appropriate referrals to domestic violence service providers, work with professionals to assist identified victims with safety planning, and develop individualized responses in recognition of the physical, social and cultural realities that may affect an individual victim’s situation.
Training will also include information on ways in which domestic violence impacts the workplace, including potential impact on worker productivity and the safety risks to on-site personnel and visitors.
