Eliminating Violence and Harassment in the World of Work
Violence and harassment in the world of work deprives people of their dignity, is incompatible with decent work, and a threat to equal opportunities and to safe, healthy, and productive working environments. It remains a widespread phenomenon, present in all countries and disregarding sectors, occupations and work arrangements.
To shape a world of work free from violence and harassment, the ILO has established new global standards aimed at ending violence and harassment in the world of work. Historically in 2019, the ILO Convention No.190 and Recommendation No.206 were adopted. The Convention and Recommendation recognizes the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and harassment, including gender-based violence and harassment.
