Globally, around 75% of women aged 18 years and over have experienced sexual harassment. Sexual harassment involves sexualised forms of unwanted or unwelcome behaviour, which violates the dignity of an individual and creates a humiliating environment. Although both women and men may be subject to sexual harassment, victims are predominantly women, and perpetrators are predominantly men.

Moreover, research shows that about a third of women who have faced sexual harassment in the EU experienced it at work. Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination that hinders gender equality, creates a hostile work environment, and adversely impacts the well-being of workers.

The National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) is empowered by Chapter 456 of the Laws of Malta to investigate complaints of alleged sexual harassment in the workplace and to provide the necessary assistance and information in the compilation of a complaint. Complaints can be lodged using the form available on the NCPE’s website.

In this context, the NCPE works to raise awareness on sexual harassment in the workplace. The NCPE is disseminating the attached poster to different stakeholders to reach out to more potential victims and/or perpetrators of sexual harassment.

'Fraudulent labour recruitment in Malta remained a significant concern for the US State Department, as flagged in its annual Trafficking in People report for 2022.

The report points to illegal recruitment fees, the nature of work permits, and a lack of oversight on massage parlours as areas of concern in Malta’s labour market vis-a-vis human trafficking.

In a more general profile of Malta’s trafficking situation, the US state department identified that sex traffickers tend to exploit foreign national and Maltese women and children, while labour traffickers exploit foreign men and women.'
