Violence in the World of Work

The violence in the world of the work is a threat to the dignity, safety, health and well being of all the people. It is an action, incident or behavior that is away from what it is reasonable by the which a person is assaulted, threatened, humiliated or injured by another in the exercise of his/her professional activity or as a direct consequence of it. The internal violence in the place of work is the one that takes place among the workers, or between workers and supervisors. The external violence is the one that takes place between workers (including supervisors) and any other person present at the workplace.

This is a qualitative study, based on the approach of gender and rights human. In the month of March of the current year, a 143 question-survey was carried out with 23 DW organizations affiliated to IDWF and CONLACTRAHO in Latin America. The experiences were enriched with semi-structured and in depth interviews both to experts and technical and political representatives of both organizations.

This research has as its first objective to reveal the best practices and progressive legislative frameworks in the matter of prevention and protection from harassment and gender-based violence in the world of work after the voices of the DW.

A second objective is to map the educational tools, mechanisms and programs available to affiliated domestic workers' organizations to deal with gender-based violence and that contributes to the construction of a regional advocacy strategy within the framework of the 108th Session of the International Labor Conference (ILC) from the International Labor Organization (ILO) in Geneva in June 2019.
