Harassment within interest groups

The actions of a trade union or another professional interest group are to be considered prohibited discrimination if a person experiences sexual or gender-based harassment when participating in the interest group's activities. However, the interest group's responsibility only begins when it has been informed of the harassment.

The interest group has a duty to take measures to eliminate the harassment once its legal representative has been notified of the harassment. The actions are considered prohibited discrimination if the interest group and its competent representatives (chairperson, members of the board) do not take the steps available to eliminate the harassment.
