Men's violence against women - whether it occurs in or beyond the workplace - impacts the health and safety of women at work, their wellbeing and productivity.
Flinders University is committed to achieving equal opportunity in education and employment and to a work and study environment free of unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying. Part of this commitment is to support staff who may be experiencing violence in their lives, in particular, women.
The University has introduced provisions to include staff dealing with matters arising from family or domestic violence within special paid leave. Staff can also access the Employee Assistance Program - an independent counselling service available to University staff in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
