New publication

The initial findings of the first Canadian national survey on DV in the workplace were released in November 2014. To contribute to the knowledge base and encourage further research in this area, Western University researchers have been working on preparing academic manuscripts based on the survey data. The first of such papers, entitled 'The impact of domestic violence in the workplace: Results from a Pan-Canadian survey,' was recently published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, an open-access journal which makes the article freely available online. Several other papers focused on workplace supports for DV, workers' perceptions of DV, and the relationship between DV, work, and health, are currently undergoing peer review in other scientific journals.
