The statistics speak for themselves. Sexual harassment is unfortunately a common experience occurring in all workplaces in Australia. The Australian Human Rights Commission’s 2018 sexual harassment survey found that almost two in five women (39%) and just over one in four men (26%) have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace in the previous five years. The new regulatory model recommended by Respect@Work maximises and improves the existing legislative framework, recognising the right of workers to be free from sexual harassment is a human right, a workplace right and a safety right.
