A director’s guide to preventing and responding to sexual harassment at work
9th April, 2021
The Australian Institute of Company Directors has published a guide on preventing and responding to sexual harassment at work. This concise guide “provides context, practical insights and questions for boards and directors on this systemic and serious issue.”
The report proposes a new framework for organisations to better prevent and respond to sexual harassment at work. This framework is “…victim-centred, practical, adaptable for businesses of all sizes and in all industries, and designed to minimise harm to workers”. The AHRC recognises that improving workplace prevention and response requires an approach that looks beyond just policies, training and complaint handing procedures.
