The Guidelines for Preventing Sexual Violence at Work were published by the Ministry of Manpower in 2011. The Guidelines contain a series of recommendations for the protection of women against sexual violence and processes of reconciliation for victims and perpetrators. Even though it is not legally binding, the Guidelines expects to be able to provide guidance and reference to employers, workers and responsible institutions on employment issues including how to prevent and effectively respond to sexual harassment. Moreover, these guidelines could be used by employers of all forms of enterprises in the public and private sectors that employ workers, including ministries, central and local government departments, government agencies, state enterprises, NGOs, non-profit organizations, voluntary bodies, trade unions, employers’ organizations, academic institutions, public and private employment agencies and professional training institutions.
