#CostaRica 🇨🇷 #LaborAlertBDS: Amendment of the Law Against Mobbing or Sexual Harassment at Work and School
The LAW TO ENSURE THE PUBLIC RELEASE OF FINAL PENALTIES IMPOSED ON SEXUAL HARRASSMENT BEHAVIORS was published with the Official Gazette on Thursday April 29.
This law amends Articles 5 and 34 of Act 7476, so that as from its entry into force, employers will be responsible for keeping an updated record of any final penalties imposed at workplaces or institutions on sexual harassment cases. This record will be publicly accessible and may be consulted by any interested person, protecting the identity, personal data and any other sensitive information of the victims, but including the identity of the disciplined persons. Said information must remain in this record for a 10-year term following the date when the relevant penalty has become final and definitive and will exclude underage persons from its application.
It should be noted that companies must review and adjust their policies to this amended regulation. The amendment will become effective as from April 29, 2021.In case you have any questions, you may contact us by clicking here.
