Respect @ Work – Unpacking Sexual Harassment & Discrimination


Event Details

19 September 2023, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for an informative and FREE webinar on Tuesday 19 September 2023

We will guide you through the steps to ensure compliance and promote a respectful and safe workplace culture free from sexual harassment, sex discrimination and other unlawful behaviours.

The recent introduction of a positive duty under the Sex Discrimination Act has reshaped how employers should approach workplace behaviours. This positive duty mandates that employers to take reasonable and proportionate measures to eliminate sexual harassment, sex discrimination and other unlawful behaviours. This marks a turning point for organisations in how they proactively manage workplace behaviours and intersects with an organisation’s management of psychosocial hazards under workplace health and safety regulations.

This collaborative webinar will be hosted by Georgie Chapman & Nikola Prestia, Partners at HR Legal, and will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of the positive duty to eliminate unlawful sex discrimination (including sexual harassment)
  • Current statistics and trends regarding workplace sexual harassment
  • Best practice measures to achieve compliance in line with the Australian Human Rights Commission’s recent guidelines
  • The importance of effective and meaningful training and workplace compliance

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay ahead in the ever-changing landscape of workplace compliance.

Our webinars are delivered free and online, we encourage questions from participants at any time during the webinar. We also run polls and questionnaires to keep you engaged and interacting.
