More than half of female employees in the service industry in Hong Kong have been sexually harassed

Asian Labour Review

The Women Affairs Committee of the HKCTU released a report on 8 March, the International Women?s Day, stating that nearly 60% of female employees in the service sector had been sexually harassed at work. It happened most frequently in three industries, namely property management, airlines and retailing. Nearly 70% of interviewees said that their workplaces have no (32%) or are not aware of (36%) any follow up mechanisms of sexual harassment complaints. As a result, only 15% of the victims reported their cases to the employers.
