The Government supports the adoption of an ILO Convention on ending violence and harassment in the world of work and is negotiating to achieve a convention which is ratifiable by as large a number of the ILO’s membership as possible.

Given the UK is engaged in on-going negotiation on the content of the convention, we have no plans to publish our response to the ILO Brown Report. In March, the ILO will publish its Blue Report, which will reflect the responses received.
