The victim’s statement will be the only means of proof in cases of sexual harassment in the workplace

ingles 2 2

As a result of a guardianship established by a victim of workplace harassment, the Constitutional Court established that the statement of a woman who claims to be a victim of gender violence stands as the only proof of this in some scenarios, as said statement is the only test medium available. Thus, the judges have the duty to analyze the statement together with the other direct and indicative evidence, when these are not enough.

The same corporation expresses that we still live in a society marked by macho standards, which increases the probability that in work environments there may be sexual advances towards women. This puts women in a situation of vulnerability, especially in contexts of private spaces and before a hierarchical superior who has the capacity to influence the employment destiny of the worker.
