Employee policies

Given the prevalence of violence against women, organsiations need policies to support members of staff  experiencing violence and to deal effectively with members of staff who perpetrate it. If your organisation has employee policies on any aspect of violence against women, or if you know of any, please send us details.

Gender based violence

NHS Scotland gender based violence PIN policy

This NHS Scotland PIN Policy aims to support a reduction in the risk to staff of gender-based violence and to ensure that appropriate action is taken where incidents of gender-based violence occur or where allegations are raised. PIN Policies are developed nationally in partnership between NHS Scotland employers, trade unions/professional organisations and Scottish Government. They set a minimum standard which Boards` local employment policies must either meet or exceed.  Download policy (pdf 409KB)
