Sexual harassment in the workplace: Philippine experience

Addressing sexual harassment in the workplace: The Philippine experience

On 8 February 1995, the Philippine Congress passed Republic Act No. 7866, otherwise known as the "Anti-Sexual Harassment Act of 1995". This law took effect on 5 March 1995.

The Republic Act No. 7877 is a landmark special legislation that, for the first time in Philippine legal history, names, defines and penalizes the crime of sexual harassment in workplaces and educational or training institutions in the public and private sectors.
