Sexual Harrasment Awareness and Prevention Training

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is when a worker is sexually harassed in his or her workplace, or places where workers are gathered for work-related purposes including social activity. According to a recent survey by FWRM,  one in five women interviewed (20%) had experienced sexual harassment in the workplace with high incidences with young women and in the hospitality industry.  To find out more about sexual harassment, check out our Resource Page.

About

The Sexual Harassment Awareness and Prevention Training is an initiative undertaken by FWRM to increase the awareness of and prevent the incidence of sexual harassment in the workplace. FWRM’s internationally designed toolkit through local evidence generation will help organisations increase their awareness and develop their own sexual harassment policies.

Why is this training important?According to Fiji’s Employment Relations Promulgation (2007), 76 (2) - an employer must develop and maintain a policy to prevent sexual harassment in his or her workplace.
