Tuesday 6th March 2012, Brussels: Equality between women and men is one of the fundamental principles of EU law, and furthermore, harassment is mentioned in the national legislation of seventeen European countries.
Nevertheless, gender-based discrimination is still prominent in many workplaces with harassment manifesting itself in many forms. Concern about the effects of workplace discrimination and harassment on the health and safety of workers has been growing over the last decade.
Public Policy Exchange continues its equality platform with a special international symposium on tackling gender-based discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange best practices with leading practitioners, international organisations and major stakeholders across Europe.
