Personnality infringment

The concept of personality infringement refers to circumstances in which you find yourself in daily conflicts in your workplace or your learning environment, and in which you do not feel respected or listened to.

The Swiss Civil Code provides, in article 28 and in subsequent articles, a means of protecting one’s personality rights. These measures consist of legal actions as remedies to any infringements on one’s personality rights. These rights include, amongst others, the respect of one’s privacy, of their physical integrity, of their honour, of their freedom of movement, the protection of their name and their personal data, etc.

Sexual harassment

In the national law on gender equality (LEg, art. 4), sexual harassment is explicitly described as a form of prohibited discrimination. Sexual harassment also violates the Swiss employment law and University regulations. In order to protect the victims and to prevent any possible cases of sexual harassment, directives have been promulgated by both the Canton and the Rectorate (see the Directives concernant des mesures contre le harcèlement sexuel).
