MESA says harassment bill flawed
THE ISSUE of sexual harassment in the workplace is more likely to be addressed through workplace policies that are enforced, rather than legislation.
That is the view of attorney-at-law Cecil McCarthy, QC, who spoke to the issue at a recent meeting of the Men’s Education Support Association (MESA) at the St Michael School.
McCarthy went through the proposed legislation and addressed some issues which MESA had raised questions about as far back as 2004.
MESA chairman Ralph Boyce maintained that there were about ten areas of the proposed bill that were flawed and that it was likely to harm men more than women.
While McCarthy endorsed the proposed legislation, he said some of the drafting needed to be “tightened”.
