Introduction: In the context of recent legal changes, we would like to draw attention to significant alterations regarding the prevention and combating of workplace harassment. These changes impact all employers and come with new legal obligations.
The New Reality: In 2020, it was established that employers are obliged to prevent and combat workplace moral harassment, including by imposing disciplinary sanctions on those who engage in such acts. To ensure compliance with this obligation, Government Ordinance no. 137/2000 prescribes significant fines in case of non-compliance.
Expanded Obligations: The new legal amendments extend these obligations to all employers, regardless of the size of their organization. They must implement a methodology adapted to their specific context, which includes legal provisions regarding equal opportunities and treatment between women and men in their internal regulations. It is prohibited to establish internal rules that encourage workplace harassment.
What Must Be Done: All employers must make efforts to create a safe and harassment-free work environment. This involves informing and training employees about the new legal provisions, disseminating these rules through internal communication means, and monitoring compliance.
