DCA in Brisbane - DCA's Myth Busting Domestic Violence at Work guidelines

09 Jun 2021


Domestic and family violence is a critical issue in the workplace. If an employee is living with, or using, domestic and family violence, it will have an impact on the workplace through absenteeism, presenteeism and the costs of replacement hiring. Not to mention the personal impacts on those people living with family and domestic violence.

Join DCA CEO Lisa Annese, Research Director Dr Jane O’Leary and new DCA team member Emily Tynan, Policy & Projects Coordinator in person in Brisbane for a special presentation of DCA’s recently released guidelines on Myth Busting Domestic Violence at Work.
