The Government Equalities Office (GEO) is seeking views on whether the current laws on protecting people from sexual harassment in the workplace are effective.
The deadline for responses is 2 October 2019.
The GEO want to understand people’s experiences, focussing on some particular issues they might be able to tackle through changes to the law:
- How best to make sure employers take all the steps they can to prevent harassment from happening
- Strengthening and clarifying the law so it’s clear employers should protect their staff from being harassed by clients, customers, or other people from outside their organisation
- Whether interns and volunteers are adequately protected by current laws and
- Whether people should be given longer to take a harassment, discrimination or victimisation claim to an Employment Tribunal.
