Violence and Harassment at Work

The Threat of Physical and Psychosocial Violence and Harassment in Digitalized Work

The workplace is changing rapidly, due to the recent increase of new technologies. Digitalization is impacting management and organisation of workplaces across the world, transforming how, how much, where, and under what conditions, people work.

The following discussion paper is designed to inform the discussions around the standard-setting item at the International Labour Conference in 2018 that will address the need for a ‘systematic approach to prevention and elimination of violence and harassment at work’ and lead to a new international labour standard on Violence and Harrassment against Women and Men in the World of Work.
