TUC - End Sexual Harassment At Work Government Petition

1 in 2 women have been sexually harassed at work and 4 out of 5 of them don't feel able to tell their employer.  2 in 3 LGBT workers have experienced sexual harassment too.

Just like health and safety rules protect us from physical dangers at work, employers need simple rules to protect us from harassment, whether it comes from a colleague, client or customer.

That's why we are demanding a new, easily enforcible legal duty.  It would require employers to take all reasonable steps to protect workers from sexual harassment and victimisation.

It is a simple step that could stop harassment in many cases before it starts.

End Sexual HarassmentJoin the call for the Government to take immediate action #ThisIsNotWorking ... visit HERE and sign the petition.
