Sexual Harassment

According to the Australian Human Rights Commission, in 2018 over 12 months, 23% of women and 16% of men have experienced sexual harassment at work in Australia.

Sexual harassment has been unlawful in Australian workplaces since 1984 and so for well over three decades, employers have invested in policies, awareness-raising, and training.

But today, it remains as prevalent as ever. It occurs in every industry, in every location and at every level, in Australian workplaces.
