Australia is one of the first countries that took into account the impact of domestic violence on workers and workplaces. Initiated in 2011, the Safe at Home, Safe at Work, funded by the Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, aims to address the consequences of domestic violence in the workplace and work life of victims and perpetrators. It provides comprehensive and diverse resources based on research.
The Project is also working nationally with employers and union to raise awareness on this issue. As a result, 1.6 millions Australian employees are covered by domestic violence clauses in their agreement or award conditions
