Domestic Abuse Awareness eLearning (Register Interest)
Thank you for expressing an interest in our eLearning. 

According to the Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSC), a total of 54,047 domestic violence reports were made in Ireland to gardaí in 2023 - an increase of 8% compared to the previous year. Consequently, the Work Life Balance and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2023 has made it a legal requirement for employers in Ireland to offer up to 5 days of paid leave over a period of 12 months to employees affected by domestic violence. 

In Northern Ireland, 33,071 domestic abuse incidents were reported in 2023 - an increase of 144 incidents on the previous 12 months. With the introduction of the Domestic Abuse (Safe Leave) Act pending, employers in Northern Ireland will have also have a duty to offer at least 10 days paid leave for victims of domestic abuse. Consequently, in their ‘Safe at home, Safe at work’ guidance, the Labour Relations Agency (LRA) and Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) Northern Ireland Committee advise that organisations should consider a programme of training for all employees.  

To implement domestic abuse leave effectively, it is recommended that employers embed this support measure within a wider organisational response to domestic abuse, outlined in a workplace domestic violence and abuse policy.

To help raise awareness and complement workplace policies and procedures, Legal Island has created a new jurisdiction-specific all-staff eLearning course on Domestic Abuse Awareness, which launches June 11th 2024.
