Finnish Sexual Harassment Often Goes Unreported

Sexual harassment at the workplace often goes unreported in Finland. However, 22 percent of women in Finland have experienced sexual harassment on the job, reports the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. Harassment is often downplayed at the workplace. But according to the law, sexual harassment is discrimination, and sufficient grounds for dismissal. Still, some women fear that reporting harassment could be detrimental to their careers.
