Respect at Work
Sexual harassment is not a women’s issue: it is a social issue. The figures are shocking.
Almost 2 in 5 women (39%) and just over 1 in 4 men (26%) have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace in the past five years.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are more likely to have experienced workplace sexual harassment than non-indigenous people (53% and 32% respectively).
Australian workplaces can take action to address sexual harassment. By doing so, workplaces help create mentally healthier places for all workers. Workplace sexual harassment is not inevitable. It is not acceptable. It is preventable.
