Webinar: Respect@Work

Sexual harassment - new positive duty for employers coming soon

Addressing sexual harassment in workplaces has been a priority for many employers. However, it soon will not be an option with the impending introduction of a positive duty on employers to eliminate sexual harassment and sex discrimination.

This is relevant for private sector, state and Commonwealth government, and not-for-profit employers as recent changes to the Sex Discrimination Act on the back of the Respect@Work report mean the new positive duty will likely apply to all employers (excluding small businesses).

Sally Moten, Partner Workplace Relations & Safety at Lander & Rogers and Lucinda Gemmell, Chief People Officer of Airservices Australia discuss:

  • recent and impending legislative changes
  • practical steps employers should be taking now to satisfy the duty to eliminate sexual harassment, and
  • Airservices Australia's recent high-profile organisational review to address sexual harassment, bullying and inclusion.
