Bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment - Managers and Supervisors

About the Course

WHAT IS IT? 

Bullying, discrimination and harassment, whether it be sexual harassment, age-related or racially-motivated, can happen in any workplace. Under the Fair Work Act, bullying is defined as an individual or group repeatedly behaving unreasonably towards a worker or group at work, and that behaviour creates a risk to health and safety.

Bullying may be intentional or unintentional, overt or covert, physical, silent or even over the internet, and it is illegal. Sexual harassment may also be unintentional, and if it makes people feel humiliated, embarrassed or intimidated, it is clearly wrong.

Business SA’s employee workshop has been designed to provide participants with an understanding of the laws outlining bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment at work, how to recognise it and what to do about it. People often ignore the signs and put up with it, and when they have the tools to call it out, they need to know how to do so.

All organisations have a legal responsibility for managing and dealing with the risks associated with these issues, which can have an impact on every worker, regardless of their role.
