Domestic Violence Impacts The Workplace
The effects of domestic violence may extend outside the home and spill into the workplace. When this happens, the safety of a workplace can be compromised. One of the main goals of the 2019 Stop Domestic Violence Saskatchewan conference, is to provide information and resources to help attendees from all walks of life and industry sectors understand their legal obligations, recognize the signs of domestic violence, and feel empowered to take action if required to help keep workers and their workplaces safe.
Domestic Violence And The Community
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is an important Saskatchewan public health problem, affecting mostly women of all ages who are at an increased risk for a number of unfavourable health outcomes. Generally thought of as a private form of violence, research mostly focuses on individual-level risk markers. Recently, attention has been paid to the role that the residential, neighbourhood and community environment may play in influencing the occurrence of IPV.
