Interactive Discussion and Launch of Workers' Survey on Violence and Harassment at Work

The ILO and the Never Okay Project are going to launch the findings of the workers’ survey on violence and harassment at work as part of the joint campaign to raise Indonesian workers’ awareness regarding this issue and to promote the ratification of the ILO Convention No. 190,

Conducted online for one month from 12 August to 13 September 2022, the survey aims to document knowledge and experiences of violence and harassment of both victims and witnesses within the period of two years (2020-2022) and to map vulnerability factors of Indonesian workers to violence and harassment at work. The survey also aims to identify recommendations for improving actions taken in responding to cases of violence and harassment at work.

A total of 1,173 respondents participated in the survey and the result shows that 70.93% percent of respondents have experienced or have become a victim of one of the forms of violence and harassment at work. The survey also reveals that the incidents of violence and harassment do not only happen at the offices or workplaces, but also occur online (39.06%). Working from home or working outside the office is not necessarily making workers safer from workplace violence and harassment.
