ACWS has created a toolkit to help employers, unions, employees and supervisors recognize and respond to domestic violence in your workplace. We encourage you to work with us to develop as many tools as you need to create a comprehensive and effective plan for your organization. Here is a sampling of what is provided in the toolkit. Please contact our office (780)456-7000 to arrange an introductory meeting where we will go through the toolkit in detail and help you assess how these tools can be best applied at your workplace.
