with one comment

UPDATE: SORRY, EVERYONE, BUT REGISTRATION FOR THIS ONE IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE SEE THE COMMENT FOR INFO ON HOW TO ACCESS MATERIALS.

The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence is hosting a webinar November 12th from 2-3 pm ET, Addressing Domestic Violence in the Workplace: Employee Assistance Program (EAP)/Employer Partnerships. “A recent survey of CEOs found that most believe domestic violence to be a serious issue, yet 71% did not believe it is a problem in their company. The reality is that approximately 21% of fulltime working adults report being a victim of domestic violence…


This webinar will examine: current research findings discussing the experience of abused women who sought help with EAPs, examples of EAP collaboration with Human Resources, Employee Relations and Corporate Security to address specific incidents of domestic violence, and a detailed case study of one employer’s response to domestic violence.”

Participation is free; you can register for the session here. This is one of those that may be great to pass along to your human resource folks or hospital senior management as part of an information packet on effectively responding to domestic violence within the institution.
