New Guidance on Dealing with Workplace Sexual Harassment

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published an updated guidance on sexual harassment in the workplace. The new guidance includes definitions, detail on what organisational policies must contain and information on how complaints should be dealt with.

Sexual harassment occurs when a person engages in unwanted conduct of a sexual nature that has the purpose or effect of violating someone’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them. Sexual harassment is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010.
