Sexual harassment is widespread in British industry: Women and Equalities Committee Report

The Parliamentary Women and Equalities Committee made a number of significant recommendations in its Report on sexual harassment in the workplace, after concluding that sexual harassment is widespread in British industry. The recommendations include:

  • re-introducing protection against Third Party harassment;

  • extending to 6 months the limitation periods in Tribunals;

  • a statutory Code of Practice on Harassment; and

  • that NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) should clearly allow the person who has signed them to still report the matter to the police and regulatory bodies.
