  • The legislation, which will come into effect on August 1, establishes a protocol for the prevention of workplace harassment and/or sexual harassment and violence at work as an obligation for companies and state bodies, reinforcing the preventive approach.

With the participation of officials, heads of service of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security and their respective undersecretariats, a talk was held today to detail the main guidelines and changes brought by this legislation, highlighting the importance of this new regulation.

The Karin Law, which goes into effect on August 1, represents a significant step forward in protecting the rights of workers and promoting safe and equitable work environments.

Undersecretary of Labor, Giorgio Boccardo, led the meeting held at the Bicentennial Building, highlighting that the Karin Law establishes a new standard in prevention, protocols and sanctions related to harassment and workplace violence. “Our goal is to build fair and equitable work environments, focused on reversing gender gaps,” said the authority.

She also stressed the importance of this law within the framework of President Boric’s program, which seeks social justice and participation in the work environment. “The legislation seeks to initiate a conversation and a cultural change in the way we relate to each other at work,” she emphasized.

The event detailed the measures that companies and employers must adopt to ensure workplaces free of harassment and violence. “Violence and workplace harassment generate occupational and mental health problems, and can be a reason for leaving a job. It is essential that companies implement appropriate prevention protocols,” said Boccardo.

The importance of ratifying ILO Convention 190, which seeks to create workplaces free of harassment and violence, was also highlighted.

The Karin Act not only raises standards in the private sector, but also introduces formal procedures and time limits for the public sector, including administrative and municipal statutes.

The authority stressed that both the Superintendency of Social Security (SUSESO) and the Directorate of Labor (DT) have published the rules and regulations necessary for the implementation of the Karin Law. “We are 100% committed to this process and we need the participation and commitment of everyone,” said Boccardo.
