Respect@Work: Employer obligations to eliminate sexual harassment

Late 2022 saw major milestones in the passing of the Respect@Work Bill and amendments to the Sex Discrimination Act. As a part of the Bill, a ‘positive duty’ will be imposed on employers to take measures to eliminate workplace sexual harassment, victimisation and sex discrimination as far as possible.

What does this mean for your organisation?

Essentially, this duty is being implemented to shift from a complaints-based model to a proactive approach. All employers will be required to move from simply responding to conduct that has happened, to proactively taking steps to prevent that conduct from happening. Whilst a 12 month transition period is in place before these will be enforced, government are encouraging businesses to take action now for this to be a well-embraced and successful implementation.

At MATE, we are able to walk with you in this journey and provide as much assistance as possible to get this right from the get-go.

The Creating Respectful Workplaces Train the Trainer covers the entire MATE Creating Respectful Workplaces curriculum – giving you the full MATE experience and skills to be a dynamic facilitator and support your workplace to:

  • Participate in discussions with your colleagues about what makes a workplace ‘respectful’
  • Discuss what you believe a positive workplace culture, diversity and inclusion means to you
  • Explore bystander techniques to intervening in problematic behaviour, particularly sexual harassment.

To qualify for this program, you must be a current accredited MATE trainer.
