We know that maintaining employment for people experiencing FV is extremely important for their security, independence and self-esteem.

Over the years, we have provided advice and representation to clients, usually women, whose experience of FV has had a detrimental impact on their employment. In this session, we will examine the main employment law rights you should be familiar with when assisting people who are experiencing FV, including:

  • Right to request flexible working arrangements
  • Right to certain types of leave
  • Unfair dismissal

If you’re supporting clients affected by FV and you’re trying to help them maintain their employment and financial stability, you need to know about these employment rights!
