The Worker Protection Bill will become law

TODAY IS A HUGE DAY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE UK.We are delighted that The Worker Protection Bill has passed its final stage in the House of Commons which means it will become law before the end of the year.Everybody deserves to feel safe at work but the harsh reality is that too many women don’t because workplace cultures allow sexual harassment to thrive. Recent news stories have shown just how deep the crisis is and the research backs it up. At a minimum, sexual harssment is experienced by 40% of women in the workforce over the course of their career. Different women experience different rates and forms of harassment. People of colour report even higher rates of sexual harassment while 68% of disabled women and LGBTQ+ workers have experienced workplace harassment.
