End sexual harassment at work. Join our call for the government to take immediate action.
Sexual harassment has no place in the workplace but everyday, people across the UK are sexually harassed at work. Our laws rely on individuals reporting their harassment but 4 in 5 feel unable to tell their employer – #ThisIsNotWorking. It should not be down to the individual to prevent and manage their harassment alone. We need the government to strengthen the law to prevent sexual harassment at work before it happens. TIME’S UP UK is part of an alliance of unions, charities and women’s rights groups who have today launched a petition for new legislation that would require employers to take preventative measures to stop sexual misconduct in the workplace. These would be outlined in a code of practice for employers, and will include mandatory training for staff and managers, and clear policies on the subject. The alliance, called This is Not Working, includes the Fawcett Society, Action Aid, Amnesty and TIME’S UP UK.
