EHRC response to new code of practice to tackle sexual harassment at work

Equality and Human Rights Commission

Please see below for a comment from EHRC about the Government's response to the Women and Equalities Commitee's inquiry on sexual harassment in the workplace. 

This is a critical first step towards realising everyone’s right to a safe working environment. 

Every single one of us deserves an employer who doesn’t dismiss or trivialise sexual harassment, and who supports us to realise our full potential.

We are pleased that the Government recognises the need to put the onus on employers to stop sexual harassment from happening and to ensure they respond robustly when it does.

Our new statutory code of practice will set out clear advice to help employers do this.

However, to achieve real change, there also needs to be a mandatory enforceable duty on employers to protect their staff from harassment and victimisation.
