The Violence and Harassment Convention, 2019 (No.190) was adopted by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office in its 108th (Centenary) Session on 10 June 2019. The convention reaffirms the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and
harassment, including gender-based violence and harassment.

Nigeria is the fourth country in Africa and the eighth in the world to ratify the Convention. Nigeria ratified the Convention in 2022.

The Violence and Harassment Convention, 2019 builds on other relevant international instruments such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The ILO Convention 190 on Violence, Harassment in Workplace recognizes that violence and harassment in the world of work constitutes a human rights violation or abuse, and that violence and harassment is a threat to equal opportunities, and unacceptable and incompatible with decent work.

It recognizes the importance of a work culture based on mutual respect and dignity of the human being to prevent violence and harassment, and that governments have an important responsibility to promote a general environment of zero tolerance to violence and harassment in order to facilitate the prevention of such behaviours and practices, and that all actors in the world of work must refrain from, prevent and address violence and harassment.

ILO Convention 190 on Violence, Harassment in Workplace acknowledges that violence and harassment in the world of work affects a person’s psychological, physical and sexual health, dignity, and family and social environment, and that violence and harassment also affects the quality of public and private services, and may prevent persons, particularly women, from accessing, and remaining and advancing in the labour market.
