The ILO Convention on Violence and Harassment (Convention 190
) recognises every worker’s fundamental right to be free from all forms of violence and harassment at work, including gender-based violence and harassment.
Professionals Australia, in conjunction with the ACTU, is working towards the ratification of the Convention so it can become law in Australia.
