Domestic Violence at Work - CLC Survey Report

The Canadian Labour Congress partnered with researchers at the University of Western Ontario and conducted the first-ever Canadian survey on domestic violence in the workplace. Almost 8,500 Canadian workers took part in a confidential on-line survey between December 2013 and June 2014.

Women with a history of domestic violence have a more disrupted work history, are consequently on lower personal incomes, have had to change jobs more often, and more often work in casual and part time roles than women without violence experiences, but according to the survey, resources and support in the workplaces can make a difference in the lives of workers experiencing domestic violence.
