New Code of Practice around Sexual Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination – MU & ISM

The MU and ISM’s joint code of practice has been created to tackle and prevent bullying, harassment and discrimination in the music sector.

As joint representatives of the interests of the UK’s professional musicians, the ISM and the MU have created a code of practice for the music sector.

The code sets out a set of principles to aid employers in meeting their legal requirements, and presents a shared vision for promoting and maintaining a positive working culture.

This move follows the ISM’s Dignity at Work report, which recorded that 86 percent of respondents felt the need for a sector-wide code to address behavioural issues.

To sign up to support the code, please get in touch with your closest MU Office.
