IPV can spill over from individuals' personal lives into their work lives. Men's work-related IPV perpetration has been found to negatively impact their work performance and employment outcomes. Additionally, acculturation, lack of support for an intimate partner's maintenance employment, and traditional gender role expectations may have an impact on Latinos' work-related IPV perpetration. However, it is plausible that fatherhood can serve as a point of intervention for ending men's IPV perpetration. The current study aimed to examine the moderating effect of fatherhood status on the relationship between various risk factors for IPV perpetration and work-related IPV behaviors among Latinos. Additionally, work performance and employment outcomes as influenced by IPV behaviors were compared by fatherhood status. The current study used secondary data collected from a larger project involving the development and evaluation of an intervention for employed survivors of IPV. Participants (n = 120) were Latino heterosexual men enrolled in a batterer intervention program. Measures include the Work-Related Domestic Violence Perpetration Scale, a work performance scale, an employment outcomes scale, a gendered expectations scale, a support for intimate partner's employment scale, and the Language Use subscale of the Short Acculturation Scale for Hispanics. Results generated from the current study will be utilized to inform the curricula of abuse intervention programs with the intention of enhancing programming for Latinos.
