Chapter 5: Understanding domestic violence as a workplace problem
Domestic violence (DV) is increasingly understood as a workplace concern relevant to the safety of workplaces, the productivity of workers and human resource supports that should be available to employees. This chapter describes the emergence of DV as a workplace issue, profiles the results of Canadian surveys documenting the negative impact of DV victimization and perpetration on workers and workplaces, and outlines ongoing development in workplaces to raise awareness, advance prevention and workplace education initiatives, develop policies, craft new legislation, interpret existing legislation in new ways and secure entitlements for workers through collective bargaining.
