Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a pervasive problem that follows victims from the home into the workplace. Many women who experience violence in their homes are also harassed at work and are abused in the workplace. For the current study, 30 women who reported a history of workplace violence were recruited from a homeless women's shelter. Of the participants, 13 experienced domestic violence in the workplace; this article focuses on the results obtained from those 13 respondents. This article also discusses the link between homelessness, IPV, and workplace violence.
