Webinar Overview:

This webinar will share data and examples to make the case that pre-apprenticeship programs, apprenticeship programs and employers should develop policies and protocols that address domestic violence and its effects on trainees and employees. Speakers will then share strategies, resources, and highlight promising practices to help programs and employers identify the best ways they can respond. As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the incident of domestic violence and its effects on the individual pre/apprentice, co-students & colleagues, apprenticeship programs and contractors/employers.
  • Explain the legal responsibility employers/contractors and apprenticeship programs have to provide a safe and equitable workplace.
  • Describe how programs and employers/contractors can address the effects of domestic violence through model policies and practices, prevention and support strategies, and developing resources and partnerships
