Slovakia’s labour inspectorate to check for violence against women at work

Slovakia’s National Labour Inspectorate (NIP) will conduct a review of how Slovakia's anti-discrimination legislation concerning workplace conduct is being applied in practice, according to a preliminary report on the fulfilment of the country’s 2009-12 National Action Plan for Prevention and Elimination of Violence Against Women, the TASR newswire reported. The report, drawn up by the Labour Ministry, is currently on its way to the Government Office and will be reviewed by the government soon, TASR wrote. The Labour Ministry noted that labour inspectors last year did not carry out a single whole-scale audit focused on cases of sexual harassment and victimisation faced by women.
