The impact of workplace harassment and domestic violence on work outcomes in the developing world
Piotr Bialowolski and
World Development, 2020, vol. 126, issue C
Workers’ mistreatment is a serious problem, particularly for disadvantaged populations in the global garment supply chain who are often subjected to human and labor rights violations. Workplace abuses are believed to originate from human resource management practices, which aim to reduce production costs and achieve inflated production targets. Improvements in worker well-being are often perceived as costs rather than investments.
