In this session of CSR Club, we are glad to invite experts from Syntao and the Asia Foundation to share their research and insights on two topics:
Part I: Engaging Employers to Address Domestic Violence in China.
The Anti Domestic Violence (DV) Law incentivizes government, civil society organizations (CSOs), and employers to collaborate on a coordinated effort to combat DV. Employers are now required by law to be responsible for prevention and response to DV, specifically for raising awareness of the DV Law in the workplace, admonishing perpetrators, providing grievance mechanisms to assist victims, and intervening in ongoing abuses. Including employers as an ally in implementing the DV Law is important, because the workplace is a strategic avenue to address DV in China. As high as 68 percent of China’s working-age population is employed, with women comprising 44 percent of the labour force. Workplace interventions provide a practical mechanism to reach to this large population, especially those who have migrated within China and have weak access to social safety nets in the communities where they reside.
In 2017, The Asia Foundation and SynTao Co., Ltd. conducted a research on the impact of DV in the workplace in China. The findings reveal how DV impacts both employees and their co-workers, and how DV has cost implications for employers. Based on the evidence collected from the research, the Asia Foundation, in collaboration with Shanghai Pudong New Area CCM CSR Promotion Center, started implementing a project on Engaging Employers to Address Domestic Violence in China since May 2018.
The project aims to raise employers’ awareness of the DV Law and DV’s impact in the workplace and improve employers’ capacity to undertake cost-effective responses to DV in the workplace.
