WELLINGTON, June 22 (Xinhua) — More than 10 percent of workers in New Zealand admitted they had been harassed, discriminated against or bullied at workplace, according to a survey released on Saturday.

The survey, conducted by New Zealand’s statistics department Stats NZ, shows 11 percent of workers feel they have been discriminated against, harassed, or bullied in the past 12 months.

New Zealand will be ratifying the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Protocol on Forced Labor, and supporting work by the ILO to end violence and harassment at work, Minister for Workplace Relations and Safety Iain Lees-Galloway said on Friday.

“Becoming party to the protocol sends a clear message of the importance that we place on tackling forced labor and other forms of modern slavery in New Zealand and around the world,” Lees-Galloway said.
