Sexual harassment

Employers and directors of institutions and social activities must take special measures to prevent workers, students and clients from being subjected to sexual harassment at the workplace, within institutions, during social activities or within schools. 

Act 10/2008 defines sexual harassment as sexual behaviour that is unreasonable and/or insulting and against the will of those who are subjected to it, and which affects their self–esteem and is continued in spite of a clear indication that this behaviour is unwelcome. 

Sexual harassment can be physical, oral or symbolic. One event may be considered sexual harassment if it is serious.
