Sexual Harassment Legislation in CH: Does It Exist?

I am doing some research on this topic and thought I'd ask the knowledgeable EF community for help with this.

I'm interested in factual information as relates to Switzerland only and not other countries like the UK or America as that is very easy to find on the web.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide reference links, points of law etc.

Re: Sexual Harassment Legislation in CH: Does It Exist?

www.federallaw.admin.ch is also a good starting point (albeit with a limited selection of translation acts), or for the full listing of federal legislation www.bundesrecht.admin.ch.

The following should get you started:

Gender Equality Act
in English (http://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifie...2/index.html): Addresses sexual harassment in the context of discrimination at the work place.

Employment Act (Arbeitsgesetz) in German (http://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifie...9/index.html): Addresses protection to be applied by employers to safeguard employees as a matter of statutory employment law.

Swiss Criminal Code in English (http://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifie...3/index.html): Addresses the whole range of criminal acts.

Swiss Code of Obligation in English (http://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifie...9/index.html): Addresses protection of employees as a matter of employment contract.

Swiss Civil Code in English (http://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifie...2/index.html): Contains provisions on the protection of personality.

Victim Support Act (Opferhilfegesetz) in German only (http://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifie...9/index.html): grants victims of certain crimes additional protection and support.
