Case #108: Sexual and psychological harassment at the workplace

Vulnerable group: women

Human rights area: sexual harassment, psychological harassment, labour law

A new case was taken up through The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights. It is about a woman from Bucharest who works for a state institution and is sexually harassed and constantly threatened by a work colleague. She reported this behaviour to her direct boss, but the harassment ceased for only a short time. The director of the employing institution held a meeting to discuss the applicant's situation, after which she was informed that she would be subjected to a disciplinary control. At the same time, the employer did not carry out an effective and efficient investigation into the facts reported by the applicant.

The case has been taken over by Attorney Ciprian Pozderie (Bucharest Bar), whom we thank and wish a lot of success in solving the case!
