Workers can report incidents of violence or harassment through a new free-of-charge phone service that began operations on Monday.

The service, which aims to provide support to any employee who is the victim of violence or harassment at work, is available on 77 77 55 75.

Its operation was announced on Labour Day during an event by Sek trade union.

Through this helpline, workers will be able to report such incidents which will then be handled by unions and technocrats in consultation with the complainant, Sek general secretary Andreas Matsas said as he announced the line’s operation.

Callers will also be offered psychological support and guidance from a group of psychologists and other professionals.
