Council’s New Duty to Prevent Sexual Harassment

From October 2024 new legislation (s40A Equality Act 2010) will create additional legal requirements for Councils, along with all Employers, to take proactive steps to prevent Sexual Harassment at Work. Councils will not be able to simply rely on paper-based training and policies within staff handbooks to defend themselves against claims of Harassment. Instead they will need to take pro-active steps to demonstrate that they are preventing the problem.
