Now Accessible: Regulations on Preventing Sexual Harassment

December 2015

The image above is a component of the cognitively accessible poster

The Hebrew University's Clinic on the Rights of People with Disabilities and Dr. Sigal Uziel-Karl, an expert on cognitive accessibility, joined Israel Elwyn (IE) to make the regulations on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace cognitively accessible.  Together with service recipients from the Jerusalem and S. Israel Branch of Israel Elwyn, they created a cognitively accessible version of the regulations.

IE provides employment placement services in the competitive job market.  The need to make the regulations cognitively accessible became apparent from requests received from people with disabilities working in the community, who wished to understand the subject in general and in the workplace specifically.  This version of the regulations also helps employers, particularly those employing more than 25 workers, who are obligated by law to post the regulations in the workplace and provide explanations.

It should be noted that the regulations do not stand alone but must be accompanied by proactivity and explanations.  We are currently working on an explanatory booklet that will assist with this goal.

The symbols for the cognitively accessible version of the regulations were created by The Israeli Institute on Cognitive Accessibility.

The accessible version of the regulations meets the standards for cognitively accessible documents, which require printing in color and must be 50 cm by 70 cm.

For further information, contact IE's offices (02-641-5448, ext. 105) or email

The cognitively accessible version of the regulations was created with the support of the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.
