On April 20, 2018, the Clara Wichmann Proefprocessenfonds, the Dutch Association for Women and Law, and the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance will organize an expert meeting on #metoo led by chairperson Kathalijne Buitenweg, Member of Parliament and vice-chairperson of the Dutch political party GroenLinks.
|Date||20 April 2018|
|Time||14:00 - 17:00|
#metoo has made clear that sexual harassment is shockingly common. The prohibition of sexual harassment is anchored in Dutch legislation, yet hardly any litigation is started against sexual harassment. In order to effectively stop sexual harassment, the follow-up action #time's up has started in the United States. Is in the Netherlands now also the way open to give effect to the existing rules and to claim justice in the courtroom?
During the expert meeting, the ban on sexual harassment in the workplace is central and we take stock of the possibilities of (strategic) litigation and the (legal) bumps that come with it.
Registration has been closed on 13 April. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to email@example.com and we will place you on a waitinglist.
