Are employers sufficiently aware of their obligations?
Maltese employment law prohibits discrimination and sexual harassment through various laws and regulations. The Equality for Men and Women Act and the Equal Treatment in Employment Regulations provide definitions of what constitutes harassment – basically unwelcome sexual conduct or request. Under Maltese law, the employer is deemed to discriminate against a person if the obligation to suppress sexual harassment is neglected. In order to be protected from sexual harassment claims being made by an employee, the employer needs to be in a position to prove that all necessary steps and effective measures were taken to prevent harassment from taking place.
