New Legislation to Combat Moral Harassment in Luxembourg Workplaces from March 2023

LuxembourgPosted on 13 April 2023 by Team

Luxembourg is set to introduce new legislation against moral harassment in the workplace. The new law, which is set to come into force on 29 March 2023, includes a definition of moral harassment and outlines specific measures to prevent and address it. The law defines moral harassment as any abusive behaviour that manifests itself in words, acts, or gestures that are repeated or systematic and that intentionally cause physical or psychological harm or undermine the dignity of the victim.

Employers will be required to take steps to prevent and address moral harassment in the workplace, including providing training to employees and implementing procedures for reporting and investigating allegations of moral harassment. The law also establishes a mechanism for employees to seek compensation for the harm caused by moral harassment, including non-material damages such as emotional distress.

The law also imposes penalties on employers who fail to comply with the new requirements, including fines and possible imprisonment. Employers will need to ensure that their policies and practices are updated to comply with the new legislation, including implementing appropriate training and reporting mechanisms to prevent and address moral harassment in the workplace.
