Eliminating Violence and Harassment in the World of Work

The ILO has established new global standards aimed at ending violence and harassment in the world of work.

Shaping a world of work free from violence and harassment

  1. Violence and harassment in the world of work deprives people of their dignity, is incompatible with decent work, and a threat to equal opportunities and to safe, healthy, and productive working environments. It remains a widespread phenomenon, present in all countries and disregarding sectors, occupations and work arrangements.

    The adoption of Convention No. 190 and Recommendation No. 206 recognizes the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and harassment, including gender-based violence and harassment.
