Jennifer Bray, in The Irish Times, reports:
A “dignity and respect” helpline is being set up at Leinster House to which politicians and staff will be able to report cases of bullying and sexual harassment in the Oireachtas.
Details of the planned helpline are included in a new policy which sets out actions to be taken where complaints are made.
“While members have a particular commitment to uphold the highest standards of behaviour as public representatives, they can also be vulnerable to vexatious claims,” the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission document says.
