Sexual harassment has no place in the workplace but every day, 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.
Call for the government to take immediate action. Sign the petition >>
You can also email your MP to tell them the law needs to change.
UNI Global Union - No excuses campaign
Experiencing sexual harassment is one of the most difficult situations that a person can face in the workplace. No workplace is immune from sexual harassment.
Wherever sexual harassment occurs, it must be stopped.
ZERO TOLERANCE: NO EXCUSES.
Call it out!
Usdaw members who have faced sexual harassment say it’s often hard to deal with especially when other colleagues laugh at so called jokes and join in with the banter.
In the heat of the moment fear, anger, shame, embarrassment or panic can make it very difficult to respond – knowing other people are on your side really helps. This short film shows why it helps for us to call out sexual harassment and suggests some ways you can challenge it.
