Crossover of workplace aggression experiences in dual-earner couples
Authors: Victor Y. Haines III, Alain Marchand, and Steve Harvey
This study investigates whether workplace aggression experienced by one or both members of a couple accounts for increases in the psychological distress of the victim’s partner. Viewing the work-family interface and stress-strain processes as dyadic, and open to interindividual and interdomain contagion, analyses were conducted on matched data from a large-scale population health survey containing information on both working adults from 2,904 couples. Multilevel analysis of bidirectional crossover, while controlling for common stressors, supports the proposition of a crossover of stress resulting from workplace aggression. This finding highlights the complexities of work-family dynamics and of the deep penetration of workplace aggression into the lives of dual-earner partners.
