National Conference and Project on Domestic Violence for Employers and Employee Assistance Program Providers


 
Domestic violence has a significant impact on the workplace. Many employers are addressing domestic violence in their workplace, and there may be opportunities to build on existing efforts, especially through Employee Assistance Programs.
    
The S2 - Safer, Smarter Workplace conference was the first national conference convening employers and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) providers to leverage their work preventing and responding to domestic violence and its impact on the workplace.  The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence hosted this national conference November 6-7, 2008, in San Francisco, California.  

In addition CAEPV has hosted ongoing webinars to continue the dialogue and build capacity for employees and EAP providers.
