The Prevention of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

The Sexual Harassment Prevention Law was enacted in 1998 with the goal of creating a social change by preventing the infringement of personal freedom and privacy, as well as advancing gender equality. The law places responsibility on the employer to create a safe work environment free of sexual harassment, and recognizes that in order to create such an environment there must be regulations in place to prevent sexual harassment. Each of the rape crisis centers holds workshops and lectures for employers and employees of various workplaces. As part of these workshops, participants are taught myths connected to sexual harassment, participate in discussions about the law, and are taught the obligations and rights of workers and supervisors. Additionally, the rape crisis centers hold seminars and workshops for supervisors about sexual harassment in the workplace, at which they receive knowledge and tools, professional consultations and support for filling such a complicated role.
