Workplace harassment is a global issue that undermines the dignity of people and the productivity of employers. Recognizing the need for firm legislative measures, Romania has legislated significant changes to create a safer and more equitable work environment. A key development is the 2023 Methodology for Preventing and Combating Gender-Based and Moral Harassment at Work (Methodology), approved by Government Decision No. 970 on October 12, 2023. This article examines the content of this methodology, its integration with international legal instruments such as the ratification of the 2019 ILO Convention No. 190, and the recent adoption of the EU Whistleblowers’ Directive.

On April 24, 2024, the European Parliament adopted a resolution for a directive aimed at improving working conditions on platforms. This is a significant step towards addressing the needs of platform workers, such as 'Bolt' and 'Wolt' couriers, throughout the European Union.

In an era where social media has become an integral part of daily life, the issue of privacy protection is gaining increasing importance. Typically, social media platforms offer mechanisms to control access to the content which individuals share on their profiles, including the so-called profile “locking”.

After prolonged delays, the Estonian Parliament finally incorporated the EU Whistleblowing Directive into national law on 15 May 2024 by passing the Act on the Protection of Whistleblowers of Work-Related Violations of European Union Law (referred to as the Whistleblower Protection Act).

On 25 April 2024, Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Regarding the Regulation of Labour of Domestic Workers”, which introduces regulation of labour relations with domestic workers. The Law supplements the Labour Code of Ukraine (the “Labour Code”) with a new Chapter "Labor of Domestic Workers".
