The Law for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace was enacted in 1998 in order to advance social change – to protect an individual’s freedom and privacy, and to advance equality among the sexes. The law specifies that it is the employer who is responsible: to ensure a safe and pleasant working environment, free from sexual harassment; to inform employees of the prohibition on sexual harassment; and to efficiently address cases of harassment. The law recognizes that in order to create such an environment, the organization and its directors must strictly enforce regulations that prevent sexual harassment.
The rape crisis centers offer: accompaniment and consultation for persons in charge of implementing the Law for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace; workshops and instruction regarding the Law (for employees, directors and supervisors); courses to train persons in charge of the Law in the workplace; and accompaniment to employees who have suffered sexual harassment.
