Anne Main calls for a form of reporting for those that observe sexual harassment and not just for victims themselves

30th October 2017

Following the Speaker's statement to the House of Commons on allegations of a culture of sexual harassment at Westminster, Anne Main calls for a form of reporting for other people who may observe harassment and bullying at a workplace, particularly when victims are not empowered to speak up and make a complaint themselves.

I very much welcomed, Mr Speaker, your mention in your speech of bullying and other forms of harassment. Sometimes victims are not empowered to speak up and make a complaint, so can we make sure that there is a form of reporting for other people who may observe harassment and bullying within an office or workplace and feel they could alert someone to it?

Yes. I think that if we can establish a proper grievance procedure, it should be perfectly possible to report observed behaviour, not just personal experience.
