Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Interim Director of HROD which set out a revised and strengthened approach to supporting staff who are subject to or affected by domestic abuse.  The existing policy had been refreshed to reflect changes in best practice and learning over the last three years as well as consultation with the Council’s Community Safety team.   The policy had also been aligned with the Council’s zero-tolerance ‘Delivering Differently’ Domestic Violence and Abuse Strategy.  The Committee was invited to approve the policy and its implementation.

 

The Committee noted that an internal communication strategy would be rolled out to staff to inform them of changes to the policy.  Members also discussed the importance of leading by example and exerting influence to larger employers in the city to adopt similar ways of working.

 

No Trade Union comments had been submitted for the item. The Committee fully supported and welcomed the proposals.

 

Decision

 

To approve the revised Domestic Abuse policy.
