Designing and Implementing Policy on Anti – Sexual Harassment
July 26 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm₱6000 – ₱8000
The International Labour Organization (ILO) has recently adopted a new convention on violence and harassment at work. ILO coined the term “violence and harassment” in the world of work which refers to a range of unacceptable behaviors and practices, or threats, whether a single occurrence or repeated, that aim at, result in, or are likely to result in physical, psychological, sexual or economic harm, and includes gender-based violence and harassment.
The Philippines has already enacted the Republic Act (RA) 7877 which is known as the “Anti-Sexual Harassment Act of 1995”. The law mandates the creation of a body within the workplace that will do the actual investigation of sexual harassment cases. This body is the Committee on Decorum and Investigation (C.O.D.I.). The rules and regulations can only be effective in an environment that facilitates disclosure and filing of complaints and empowerment to the victims. The body that will help facilitate the creation of this kind of environment is again the C.O.D.I.
The one-day program aims to facilitate understanding of the scope and effects of sexual harassment in the workplace; assist in providing better appreciation of the law on sexual harassment; identifying practical measures in preventing and managing sexual harassment; and defining the responsibility of the employer specifically pointing-out the roles of the CODI as well as the procedures in managing sexual harassment complaints and investigations.

- Have a clear view of the actual scope of sexual harassment
