Monaco releases new guide detailing law against workplace harassment

The Prince’s Government has published a Legal and Practical Guide on harassment and violence in the workplace.

The Guide provides information according to various situations – employer, referent, victim, employee, allowing each person to find the answers to the questions that are likely to arise.

It presents the main elements of a law introduced in 2017, No. 1.457, relating to harassment and violence at work, which protects employees and trainees as well as civil servants and State agents against acts of moral or sexual harassment, sexual blackmail and violence at work.

The purpose is for the text to help prevent and stop this behaviour in the workplace, and shed some light on the specifics of the law.

The Guide is therefore designed to be a reference tool for employers and employees in the Principality, and has been sent to the relevant social bodies so that they can disseminate it to their members.

“The fight against harassment and violence, in all their forms, is a major axis of public policies in the Principality of Monaco,” said Christophe Robino, Minister of Social Affairs and Health. “In the specific context of the work, this Guide constitutes an additional instrument contributing to this objective.”

Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
