Legislation on equality and non-discrimination is often used to address harassment at work, particularly sexual harassment.  State-funded gender equality or anti-discrimination bodies and Ombuds offices also have a key role to play in identifying, raising awareness and proposing solutions to end violence and harassment against women in the world of work. Sometimes, equality bodies directly address cases of discrimination and violence at work. They also take a range of preventative actions, including:  training for police and public bodies; preparing codes of practice on violence at work; undertaking awareness-raising; as well as supporting litigation regarding sexual harassment in the workplace (Equinet, 2015).
