Psychological Safety Sexual misconduct Transgressive Behaviour

Revised Legislation to Combat Sexual Misconduct

As of July 1, 2024, the Netherlands has introduced the new Sexual Misconduct Act, marking a significant step forward in the fight against sexual violence and harassment. This legislation better protects victims by broadening the definitions of rape and assault to include situations where consent was clearly absent, even without the presence of physical force or threats. The law also criminalizes public and online sexual harassment, ensuring a safer environment for everyone.

At 1for2 Social Innovation, we welcome this legislation as it aligns with our mission to foster a psychologically safe workspace. We are committed to supporting employees who experience transgressive behavior through our confidential counseling and trusted advisor services. Our goal is to create a work environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and secure.
