Government Equalities Office consultation: Sexual harassment in the workplace

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.
