WOMEN EMPLOYEES are afraid to speak up against sexual harassment in the workplace, but they need not suffer in silence, a social activist has said.

“People should not be afraid to come forward if they have been victims of sexual harassment,” said Joyann Inniss of the National Union of Public Workers. “It is essentially your right if you have been a victim to come forward and say something.”

She was speaking during a panel discussion on draft Sexual Harassment In The Workplace Bill hosted by the Men’s Health and Educatipn Group of the Maurice Byer Polyclinic in St Peter on Monday night.

Moderator Aird Atherley said that often the “friendliness” of Barbadians transferred even into work relationships and gave rise to harassment claims. (MR)
