A webinar presented by the IBA Legal Policy and Research Unit, supported by the IBA Global Employment Institute, the IBA Law Firm Management .. Read more Committee, the IBA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Law Committee and the IBA Women Lawyers' Interest Group. Covid-19 has forced full-time, home-based working and physical isolation from the outside world. It has led to a worrying rise in calls to domestic abuse helplines and reports of violence, including dedicated helplines for lawyers. How are firms addressing these issues – if at all – and why should they take into account what happens to their staff outside the workplace? Every workplace must consider the safety and wellbeing of its employees. Domestic violence knows no social or economic boundaries and occurs with alarming frequency, with the victim often suffering in silence.
