Labor and Employment Law – Strategic Global Topics


Sexual Harassment Law in the workplace around the world

We would have thought that, in 2018, the topic of sexual harassment would no longer attract sufficient interest for a global hot topics newsletter.

Yet, the events coming to light in 2017 prove the contrary: employers need to be even more vigilant than ever to ensure that employees feel safe at work, and free from both quid pro quo (direct) and also hostile environment (indirect) harassment.

The significant risk to corporations, not only with respect to employment law litigation, but also damage to the image and reputation of a corporation especially in our social media world, requires the involvement of all key stakeholders.

CEOs, General Counsels, Human Resource Directors and Managers all need to be engaged in this effort to eradicate for once and for all this persistent problem. In this edition, we feature the laws of 38 countries on the topic of sexual harassment.
