Sexual harassment victims to "have their say" on laws designed to protect them
The Government Equalities Office is calling for sexual harassment victims to share their stories, in one of the largest surveys of its kind ever to be carried out. Feeding into plans to strengthen protections for employees across the UK from sexual harassment, it will allow the public to have an impact on Government policy. The survey is part of a package of commitments to tackle sexual harassment at work, including a new statutory code of practice so employers better understand their legal responsibilities, and a consultation on new plans to tackle harassment at work which the Government will respond to, with next steps, in Spring 2020.Link to Publication
