In 2018 – against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement – Parliament adopted a bill to amend the Act on Equal Treatment of Men and Women. The amendment entered into force on 1 January 2019, helping to shine a spotlight on sexual harassment in the workplace. Now, the social partners and the Danish Working Environment Authority have joined forces to launch the 'Where's the limit?' campaign, which aims to prevent unacceptable and offensive conduct in the workplace and create a working environment that is free from sexual harassment.
As part of the campaign, a website has been set up to provide information in this regard, including a campaign video and a leaflet with 10 recommendations on how to prevent and handle sexual harassment.(1) A dialogue tool has also been developed, comprising a range of dialogue cards intended to facilitate discussions on sexual harassment in the workplace.
