Why is it Important to have a Family Violence Policy?

Recently, the NZ Human Rights Commission produced a series of videos on this topic, with one video featuring Shine’s Communications & Marketing Manager Holly Carrington. Holly makes an important point: “A family violence policy is a critical first step, because it helps an employee know that it’s safe to disclose and that they will be supported if they do talk about what’s happening. Also because it provides guidance to managers and HR staff on how to deal with these situations when they arise.”
