Monitoring and Evaluating Employer Responses
Employers may implement a variety of strategic actions to address domestic and sexual violence in the workplace but often overlook measuring the impact of such actions. Without some form of feedback, there is no way to determine if the actions are effective.
Monitoring is a normal management function and simple checks on how consistently new procedures are being implemented are needed. To begin a process for regular monitoring of workplace responses to domestic and sexual violence, use the questionnaire provided below as a guideline for the questions to consider. To monitor your responses on an ongoing basis, conduct an annual review of domestic and sexual violence prevention needs.
Any type of monitoring or evaluation will depend heavily on written records, as described below in the Annual Review Checklist. It is crucial that any individual, detailed records relevant to domestic and sexual violence incidents are kept in a confidential place and not shared with personnel who are not involved in security or management roles.
