Sexual Harassment Prevention and Regulation Mechanism
In 2019, following the initiative of the members of the Permanent Parliamentary Gender Equality Council of the Parliament of Georgia with the support of USAID-PROLoG, the Government passed legislative amendments to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace and public spaces. According to the amendments, the employer became obliged to take measures for equal treatment of all employees, as well as to include provisions on the prohibition of discrimination in internal regulations, and to ensure their fulfillment.
To support effective enforcement of the law, USAID/PROLoG, with the involvement of international and local experts, developed the Sexual Harassment Prevention and Elimination Mechanism that ensures equal treatment and non-discrimination in the workplace.
The USAID Rule of Law Program offers a free download of the developed mechanism and complaint form to adjust them to your organization's internal regulations, which will help you to prevent and eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace.
