POSTED OCTOBER 29, 2020
The Canadian Labour Congress, working with researchers at Western University and the University of Toronto, is conducting a national survey on violence and sexual harassment in the workplace.
Take the survey here.
Violence and harassment at work remains a major social problem in Canada. This survey will shed light on the prevalence of violence and harassment in our workplaces. It will look at how workers who are marginalized due to their social location and/or their precarious employment status are uniquely impacted. It will examine the links between sexual harassment and other forms of violence in the workplace.
Like with the CLC’s ground breaking Domestic Violence at Work project, the results of this research will inform policy and education initiatives on workplace violence and sexual harassment and will help the CLC develop effective strategies to prevent and respond to incidents of violence and harassment.
Launched online on October 21, all workers are invited to complete the survey—workers of every gender, whether or not you have experienced or witnessed workplace violence or harassment.
The survey is open to workers 18 years of age or older, and will take about 10 to 30 minutes to complete. All respondents will remain anonymous.
The survey is available online here.
