Western University and the labour movement in Canada have joined forces to launch a survey on the impact of domestic violence in the workplace.

American research studies have shown that a quarter of employees have experienced domestic violence, and 70 per cent of those experiencing domestic violence have had it follow them in to their workplace. While we expect the statistics are similar here in Canada, there has been no research done that could provide us with quantitative evidence.
