Consultation on sexual harassment in the workplace

Close date: 2 October 2019

The Government consults on measures to improve protection from sexual harassment at work. It is asking for views on a mandatory duty on employers to prevent harassment; the law on third-party harassment; protection for interns and volunteers; and the time limit for Equality Act 2010 claims.

The consultation exercise includes an online questionnaire, aimed particularly at individuals who have experienced sexual harassment at work, and a technical document on proposals for changes to the legislation.
