Abstract

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is recognized as a pervasive social problem. Considerable research has highlighted the psychological and physiological consequences of IPV, yet we know little about how it impacts organizational life. We draw on ecological and spillover theories to explicate the link between IPV and work attitudes and behaviors. Further, drawing on organizational support theory, we posit and empirically test the proposition that perceived organizational support (POS) buffers the negative effects of intimate partner violence on work outcomes. Data collected from 229 working women revealed that IPV was negatively associated with self-reported job satisfaction, supervisor-rated in-role performance, supervisor-rated organizational citizenship behaviors, and supervisor-rated organizational deviance. In addition, POS was found to buffer the effects of intimate partner violence on these work outcomes.
