Domestic violence is a very real problem all around the world, and Malta is no exception. One aspect of domestic violence that is often overlooked is the impact it has on people’s careers and their day-to-day lives at work.
International research commissioned by the Vodafone Foundation across 9 countries found that 67% of respondents who had experienced domestic violence and abuse felt it affected their career progression, and 51% said they felt too ashamed to discuss the abuse at work.
Together with Vodafone Malta, we are carrying out a similar survey here, to assess the impact of domestic violence and abuse on people’s work-life and career.
For this survey, the definition of “domestic violence” found in the Domestic Violence Act 2018 is being used, which refers to violence against a person by any other person with whom that person is, or has been, in a domestic relationship (including children).
Meanwhile, Vodafone Malta have recently introduced a ground-breaking new policy to support employees impacted by domestic violence, whereby they can take up to 10 days of paid leave to seek assistance without financial consequence.
Kindly fill out this survey to help us assess the situation in Malta further.
And of course, with this being sensitive information, your anonymity is vital to us.
