Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm to the Deputy that in the event that a member of staff in my Department is concerned about bullying, harassment or sexual harassment at their place of work they are advised of the anti-bullying, harassment and sexual harassment policy for the Irish Civil Service, entitled "Dignity at Work", which is published by the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform.

During the period stated in the Deputy’s question, my Department has not received any complaints under the said policy.
