Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and the Workplace is a 3-year project (2015- 2018) funded by Status of Women Canada.There is a growing awareness of the impact that IPV can have on a workplace- for survivors of violence, individuals who perpetrate violence, coworkers, and managers.
In 2016 and early 2017, PATHS conducted survey and focus group research asking Saskatchewan workers and employers about their experiences of IPV in workplaces. 437 participants completed the survey and 27 individuals participated in interviews and focus groups. A report containing a literature review, review of legislation in other jurisdictions, and results of the Saskatchewan research will be released in Year 3 of the project.
