PHNOM PENH - Sexual harassment in the workplace could be costing the Cambodian garment industry as much as US$89 million per year, according to the Care Cambodia development organisation.

Jan Noorlander, the organisation's acting country director, told a Business of Women at Work forum that the huge sum was down to women calling in sick or resigning, reducing productivity, because they did not feel safe in their jobs.

“It means that the factory has to recruit more staff and it takes time, and these all affect productivity. If you add all of these things together in a very big industry it comes to a very high number,” he said.
