Framework for Employers

Framework for Employers

The NBCC has worked with retail businesses from across the country to develop a comprehensive employer framework aimed at preventing violence and abuse within retails retail settings.

The ‘Framework for Employers’ brings together existing good practice within the sector and presents it as a comprehensive, simple step by step process that can be implemented by retailers to demonstrate how they will support their employers to prevent violence and abuse in retail settings.

The framework aims to drive best practice among retail employers, and signposts sources of guidance and advice for how employers can help to protect the wellbeing of their employees if they become a victim.

It includes a post-incident support process which highlights the practical steps employers should be taking to support retail workers after an incident of violence and abuse occurs, for example, their responsibility to ensure incidents are reported, risks are analysed and appropriate support systems are put in place. The content and style of the framework can be adapted to suit the employer’s existing processes, or existing corporate pledge on protecting employees at work.
