Gender-Based Violence & Harassment and Employment Sabotage

Gender-based violence and harassment not only impacts an individual’s personal life but also their ability to thrive in the workplace; where harm-doers can use tactics such as employment sabotage to negatively impact that individual’s employment.

Gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) is a range of overlapping violent behaviors and acts including domestic or intimate partner violence, dating violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and stalking. These acts are purposeful and deliberate with a goal of gaining power and control over another. This can include, but is not limited to, acts of physical and sexual violence, emotional or psychological abuse, coercion and threats, isolation, and economic abuse. GBVH not only impacts an individual’s personal life but also their ability to thrive in the workplace; where harm-doers can use tactics such as employment sabotage to negatively impact that individual’s employment.
