The UK government plans to introduce a new duty on employers to protect all staff from workplace sexual harassment perpetrated by clients, customers, or colleagues.

The announcement coincides with a new poll that shows seven in 10 disabled women have been sexually harassed at work, with those aged 18 to 34 more likely (eight in ten) to have experienced inappropriate and unwelcome advances.
