He said the survey results showed the most common types of sexual harassment were verbal or visual. Only a minority of women affected raised the issue with a manager or someone who could resolve the matter, he said.
In Luxembourg, there were seven requests for information but no complaints regarding sexual harassment at workplace standards agency ITM in 2016. In 2017, the year of anti-harassment social media movement #metoo, the agency received 12 requests for information and one complaint. The complaint was later dropped because of lack of evidence, the minister explained.
