Teamwork2 Launches HotDesk to Combat Sexual Harassment at Work

Teamwork2 Launches HotDesk to Combat Sexual Harassment at Work

Teamwork2, in collaboration with the Paphos Chamber of Commerce and Industry office, is proud to announce the successful launch of its new HelpDesk service, a free telephone support line dedicated to providing legal advice on matters of sexual harassment at work. This initiative is fully supported by a reputable legal firm, ensuring expert guidance is readily available to those in need.

This significant milestone marks a huge step towards enhancing prevention and protection mechanisms of sexual harassment, and explores new proactive interagency collaboration to address the needs of victoms of sexual harassment in the workplace, as well as provides capacity building and support to employers, organisations and HR professionals. 

Working two-fold, the HelpDesk aims to:

  • Provide confidential legal advice: offer victims practical guidance and advice on their rights, the steps they can take to address the issue, and the legal avenues available for seeking justice.
  • Contribute to Policy and Code Development: Advise on creation and implementation of comprehensive policies and codes of conduct aimed at preventing sexual harassment.
  • Advocate for Awareness and Prevention: Offer strategies and best practices to raise awareness about sexual harassment and promote a culture of zero tolerance.
  • Offer Investigation and Support: Guide employers on how to properly investigate claims of sexual harassment and how to support victims within the workplace.

The HelpDesk is now operational and available to the public. To access the service in Cyprus, individuals can call the dedicated telephone line – 26 81 81 73 – during business hours for immediate assistance.
