To the best of the researcher's knowledge, participation in the survey will bring you no more risk of harm than you would experience in your everyday life. You may experience mild discomfort because the researcher is asking you to recall experiences in the workplace which may have involved your emotions. Because online privacy can never be fully guaranteed, there is the risk that a breach of privacy (others may know that you are participating in research) and confidentiality (identifiable data could be accidentally disclosed) could occur. The data collected will be reported in aggregate, so as not to identify individual participants.
This study is not designed to benefit you personally. This study is designed to learn more about emotional labor and the dimensions of employment experiences for employees of not-for-profit human services agencies. The study results may be used to help other people in the future.
