The first dedicated Safe Work Australia guidance on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace has been released after the conclusion of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s national inquiry and recommendations.

The Preventing Workplace Sexual Harassment National Guidance Material compliments the Safe Work Australia Preventing Workplace Violence and Aggression National Guidance Material and includes targeted resources and information for small businesses and staff aimed a preventing workplace violence and harassment.

The Codes will form the core of what is expected in a best practice response and may in fact be called up by some legislative instruments.

Members are advised to explore the Guidance and how it may impact on their business and to reach out to ACAPMA with any questions.
