Domestic Abuse in the Workplace

  • Genre: Drama
  • Runtime: 24 min

Objective:
To educate and train union employees and supervisors to support victims of abuse when they suspect a fellow co-worker is being abused at home or at work by their partner.

Approach:
Using professional actors, dramatizations were produced using the 'See It. Name It. Check It. approach. Co-workers and supervisors learn to incorporate this messaging into their interaction with either the victim or their supervisors in reporting possible abusive scenarios at work. Eight scenarios were produced using a variety of union workplace settings.
