Employers’ duty to protect staff from sexual harassment

19 November, 2021

The new Sex Discrimination and Fair Work (Respect at Work) Amendment Act 2021 (the Act) aims to combat the prevalence of sexual harassment in Australia by clarifying and simplifying sexual harassment laws and encouraging meaningful cultural change in workplaces, as Holding Redlich’s Rachel Drew writes.

To achieve this, the Act introduces some of the recommendations made in the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) report, Respect@Work: A National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in the Australian Workplace.
