Violence and harassment in health and social services
Sarah Ryan | CUPE Research
Violence is not “just part of the job,” in social services or anywhere else. Unfortunately, the social service and health care sectors have some of the highest rates of workplace violence.

Violence and harassment, defined
CUPE defines violence in the workplace as any incident(s) in which an employee is threatened, assaulted or abused during the course of their employment that may cause physical or psychological harm.

CSS Labour Adjustment and Education Fund
The Community Social Services Labour Adjustment and Education Fund (LAEF) is designed to encourage professional development and continued employment for workers in the community-based social services sector.
The LAEF covers retraining to aid and assist individuals in the community social services sector who have lost their job due to layoff, bumping, contracting out or retendering, or have had their hours significantly reduced; or who are taking courses or upgrading to continue in a unionized community social service position in British Columbia.
To be eligible, impacted members must have been covered by one of the three community social services sectoral agreements (i.e. Aboriginal Services, Community Living Services and General Services).
