While no organization wants to believe that sexual harassment at work is an issue happening at their workplace, the sad reality is that sexual harassment of different forms is widely prevalent today. When a workplace is infected with discrimination and harassment, everyone suffers.
To lay the legal groundwork for a safe and healthy work environment, Vietnam 2019 Labour Code stipulates that sexual harassment is prohibited in the workplace. It also includes some relevant regulations which for example give employees who are victims of sexual harassment the right to unilaterally terminate their labour contract and the labor law also allow for company to dismiss the accused who violate the sexual harassment guideline. On the other hand, termination and dismissal of employees are highly regulated under Vietnamese law.
AmCham Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City would like to invite you to a seminar conducted by an esteemed panel of legal expert and HR and Business Directors who will share legal regulations and best practices to identify, investigate, manage and prevent harassment of all forms at the workplace, with special focus on prevention of sexual harassment at work.
