To qualify for a Family Violence Exclusion a person must:
- request to be excused from work and training activities because of a domestic or sexual violence problem; and
- provide proof that they or a member of their family are a current or past victim of domestic or sexual violence.
In addition to personal threats or acts of physical violence, the domestic or sexual violence may be in the form of intimidation through stalking. Stalking may be via electronic device such as phone or e-mail.
A written request is not required. Document the person's verbal request in the case record. If a person wants to file a written request, they may do so. A person can request to be excused from work and training activities at anytime under the Family Violence Exclusion.
