As stated in President von der Leyen’s letter of intent and the Commission Work Programme 2021, the Commission intends to issue a legislative proposal to prevent and combat gender-based violence against women and domestic violence in 2021. When developing the proposal, the Commission takes into account all forms of gender-based violence, including gender-based and sexual harassment. The proposal is likewise intended to cover violence and harassment regardless of whether they take place online or offline.
The purpose of the workshop is to inform the participating Diversity Charters and their signatories on the ongoing preparatory work for this legislative initiative, and gather the participants’ experiences and views in tackling gender-based harassment in their companies. In particular, the participants will be invited to share views on what prohibitions are in place in their respective Member States on tackling gendered work harassment, which preventive measures and support measures are taken, and what remedies do affected employers have at their disposal. In addition, we will discuss how measures taken at the governmental, sectoral and employer levels interplay, and what further measures could be needed to ensure everyone’s right to work free from violence and harassment.
