Restigouche Employer Package

This package provides key essential information, and references to other resources, for employers regarding the impacts of domestic violence on their workplaces, and what they can do to support an employee experiencing violence.

Be better prepared to recognize and respond to situations when domestic violence may impact your workplace.

Violence originating from the home that spills over into the work environment is a business issue. Learn how employers can make a big difference.
