Sexual harassment remains a significant and complex community and workplace issue in 2019. The courts have sent clear messages about the steps employers are expected to take to prevent this type of behaviour in the workplace, and the damages being awarded for substantiated claims are increasing. However while there appears to be a general consensus on what behaviour is categorically unacceptable, there are varying opinions on exactly when inappropriate or unwelcome behaviour becomes sexual harassment. Adding to the challenges for employers, technology and work as the centre of ordinary life have also blurred the line between the workplace and home.
Libby Pallot and Abbey Burns hope that you can join them for this topical seminar, where they will aim to leave you with an understanding of:
What sexual harassment looks like in 2019 - where is the line?
Relevant factors to be aware of in today’s workplace
Considerations for your workplace when dealing with sexual harassment
What employers should do to tackle the issue
