JILPT International Seminar 2013 (February 27-28)
Workplace Bullying and Harassment

JILPT holds a biennial International Seminar on Labor Issues. This year we took up the critical issue of Workplace Bullying and Harassment, which is increasingly drawing attention worldwide, and held a two-day seminar in February, inviting academics and experts in the field of labor issues. The main purpose of the Seminar was to gather information and learn from the experiences of each participating country and to draw some policy implications through cross-national discussion and comparative analyses.

The papers presented in the Seminar are compiled as JILPT Report No.12 (2.5MB)
