OVW Special Condition re Workplace Violence
This email is being sent out as a reminder of an upcoming OVW Special Condition due date.
As you may recall, the FY2020 OVW award contained the following Special Condition:
Policy for response to workplace-related incidents of sexual misconduct, domestic violence, and dating violence.
The recipient, and any subrecipient at any tier, must have a policy, or issue a policy within 270 days of the award date (due date March 1, 2022), to address workplace-related incidents of sexual misconduct, domestic violence, and dating violence involving an employee, volunteer, consultant, or contractor.
The details of this requirement are posted on the OVW web site at https://www.justice.gov/ovw/award-conditions (Award Condition: Policy for response to workplace-related sexual misconduct, domestic violence, and dating violence).
For your easy reference, I am attaching the actual special condition language from OVW’s website.
Also, in the event that you might find it useful, I am attaching a copy of the letter that Tennessee sent out last year to subgrantees to remind them of the special condition. This is merely a sample memo for you to have as a guide in the event that you find it useful.
