Harassment in relation to the provision of goods or services

The actions of a supplier of goods or services will be considered prohibited discrimination if they or one of their representatives in guilty of sexual or gender-based harassment when providing goods or services. However, the supplier's responsibility only begins when they have been informed of the harassment.

The supplier of goods or services has a duty to take measures to eliminate the harassment once its responsible representative has been notified of the harassment. The actions are considered prohibited discrimination if the supplier of goods or services does not take the steps available to prevent that the harassment continues.

Only the company can be liable for compensation, even in cases where the perpetrator is e.g. an individual person employed by the supplier of goods or services.
