Domestic abuse support for staff ‘lacking in 50% of companies’

Around a half of employers have no dedicated domestic abuse support, according to a poll. However, 29% of those surveyed said they are reviewing their policies about offering no assistance to staff suffering from domestic abuse.

But 22% of respondents have no dedicated support and have no plans to introduce it, a poll by human resources online news service Employee Benefits showed.

Support is offered in various ways by 42% of the companies which replied, while 8% said they have benefits specifically communicated as domestic abuse support.

Among employers which have publicly announced in recent weeks that they are offering help for employees suffering domestic abuse are Redbridge Council in Greater London, insurance company Axa UK and RSA Insurance.
