In 2015, the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) addressed the issue of customer sexual harassment and revised a comprehensive bill. However, product promoters who encounter customer sexual harassment are not able to make the complaints as they do not have the support from their shops, such as supermarkets / department stores.

This grant project will do a survey and encourages promoters to share their experiences of sexual harassment in the workplace. It also encourages supermarkets / department stores to review and improve their procedure in handling cases of sexual harassment in the workplace. They will put pressure to the EOC and the Legislative Council to respond to the issue.
