Australian organisations need to do more to combat harassment and discrimination, particularly of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander workers, and workers with disability. In 2019, as in 2017, these workers experienced the highest rates of workplace discrimination and harassment of any demographic group - almost one in two (48%) Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander workers had personally experienced at least one incident of harassment and/or discrimination in the past 12 months. This was also the case for workers with disability.
