As discussed in our recent post Positive duty to prevent sexual harassment – what do employers need to do?, the upcoming changes to the Anti-Discrimination and Human Rights Legislation Amendment (Respect at Work) Bill will impose a positive duty on employers to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.
Part of Azuhr’s recommendations when it comes to creating a prevention plan includes:
- effective training for employees so that they can identify and address inappropriate behaviour
- leadership education and coaching, including bystander training, to ensure leaders understand what is expected in the workplace.
Azuhr’s Appropriate Workplace Behaviour programs, available through virtual, face-to-face and e-learning channels, aims to raise awareness about workplace behaviour by:
- outlining the legal framework, obligations and duties
- exploring how workplaces are defined, and the effects of inappropriate conduct, including those around social media
- examining protected attributes and the grounds for discrimination and the difference between direct and indirect discrimination
- explaining the consequences of these behaviours.
Appropriate Workplace Behaviour for leaders also addresses bystander intervention and complaints handling procedures.
With Azuhr’s bespoke solutions, programs can also be tailored for each organisation and adapted to address specific organisational issues.
