New provisions (AFS 2015:4) related to the social work environment enter into force on 31 March 2016. The employer must, inter alia, take necessary measures to prevent victimization at the workplace. For example, the employer will need to have a policy in place with routines for how to handle victimization at work. The Swedish Work Environment Authority will provide some guidelines on this area for employers. If the obligations are not observed, the employer may be liable to pay conditional fines and/or damages.
