The Foundation commissioned a project into violence and harassment in the workplace in 2002. This report publishes the findings of the project. It identifies the different forms and patterns of violence and harassment in the workplace in the EU and describes the recent upsurge in activity and initiatives with respect to violence and harassment within the legal arena, with new legislation addressing these problems recently enacted or in the pipeline in a number of countries. It also presents evidence of adverse effects on individuals, organisations and society, and assesses the potential financial costs. Finally, it analyses the factors that may contribute to and cause physical and psychological violence, and reviews a variety of good practices with respect to preventing and managing violence and harassment at work. A report summary (EF02112) and information sheet (EF0330) on this topic are also available.
