Women and Equalities Committee report

The Government, regulators and employers are failing in their responsibilities to tackle sexual harassment in the workplace, says the Women and Equalities Committee in a major report published following a wide-ranging six-month inquiry. The Committee finds that sexual harassment at work is widespread and commonplace but there has been a failure to tackle unlawful behaviours, despite the Government's obligations under international law. Employers and regulators have ignored their responsibilities for too long, says the Committee, and often legal protections are not available to workers in practice. Source: Fawcett Society
