SAG-AFTRA Has New Code Of Conduct On Sexual Harassment
The actor’s union SAG-AFTRA issued a new code of conduct in an effort to fight sexual harassment in the workplace. The code published Saturday says that employers are obligated to provide a harassment-free workplace and must have mechanisms for reporting it without fear of retaliation.
The union says members acting as producers or supervisors are also subject to the same laws and rules as employers.
“To truly change the culture we must be courageous and willing,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris in a statement. “At its most basic, this Code will ultimately help better define what harassment is, and what members’ rights are in real world situations.”
