Konstantinos D. Magliveras, 'The Regulation of Workplace Sexual Harassment in Greece: Legislation and Case Law Analysis' (2004) 20 International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations, Issue 1, pp. 65–80
Abstract: Unlike other European countries, Greece has still not adopted specific legislation addressing sexual harassment practices in the workplace. Empirical research has shown that workplace sexual harassment is endemic in Greece. On the one hand the article undertakes an examination of the relevant provisions in the Constitution, the Civil Code and the Criminal Code as well as the applicable provisions in collective employment agreements and, on the other hand, analyses the recent case law dealing specifically with workplace sexual harassment. It concludes that, despite the lack of specific legislation, the existing legal framework offers a reasonable measure of protection for the victims of sexual harassment.
