TUC calls on the government and bosses to do more to stamp out sexual harassment

The TUC has called on the government and bosses to do more to stamp out sexual harassment.

Responding to a report on sexual harassment published today by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “This report echoes the TUC’s research. We found that more than half of women had experienced sexual harassment at work, but only one in five reported it. The impact of sexual harassment can be devastating and long-lasting.

“Employers and government must take the practical steps set out by both the EHRC and the TUC to stamp out sexual harassment. The EHRC also highlight the role union reps have in supporting workers. If you have experienced sexual harassment, join a union today.”
