Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse Workplace Policy 2021

The Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse Policy has been developed as part of the commitment in the EA Gender Action Plan (2019- 2022). The policy was launched on 25 November 2021 as part of the 16 Days of Action against domestic violence. The 16 days highlights the connection between human rights and domestic violence. You can also find out more information at the White Ribbon Campaign.

EA were committed to developing a policy to promote a workplace culture in which there is zero tolerance for abuse and which recognises that the responsibility for domestic and sexual violence and abuse lies with the perpetrator. EA has a ‘zero tolerance’ position on domestic and sexual violence and abuse and is committed to ensuring that any employee who is the victim of domestic and sexual violence and abuse has the right to raise the issue with their employer in the knowledge that they will receive appropriate support and assistance.
