Women’s Group Bringing Workplace Sexual Harassment in Singapore into Spotlight
Author: EthicsWorld, Published on: 28 July 2008
A group of female volunteers, working through AWARE, the leading women’s advocacy organization in Singapore, conducted a survey to better understand how serious the problem is and what measures are in place to prevent sexual harassment at work. Sadly, results from the survey show the occurrence of sexual harassment at work is very high and many employees are unaware of their company’s sexual harassment policies. AWARE argues that not only is sexual harassment integral to the human right to a safe work environment, but also is the company’s best interest in order to maintain and retain a productive, motivated workforce... According to the report, “There is no legal definition and no specific legislation on workplace sexual harassment” in Singapore. Victims can only seek redress if the offense is considered criminal.
