Sexual harassment can happen any time in life. It often occurs in relationships of dependence, for example at work. In most Western countries, sexual harassment is regarded as discrimination and is unlawful, for example according to the employment law. Our equal opportunities representatives assist and advise you in the case of conflicts such as sexual harassment at work. Basic information and addresses are provided in addition in the flyer "Grenzen setzen – Was tun bei sexueller Belästigung am Arbeitsplatz” (“Setting limits –What to do in the case of sexual harassment” – not available in English) published by the "Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency" as well as by the legal principles set out in paragraphs 3 and 4 of section 3 “Definitions” of the "General Act on Equal Treatment".
