CEDAW Concluding observations on the combined eighth and ninth periodic reports of Guatemala*

The concluding observations on the combined eighth and ninth periodic reports of Guatemala acknowledge that female agricultural workers are subject to sexual harassment in the workplace, illegal practices including tests for HIV/ AIDS and pregnancy, and segregation into low-paying positions. States parties are recommended to ensure female laborers’ coverage by social and labor protections, eliminate horizontal and vertical occupational segregation, and prevent impunity in sexual violence cases.
