Changes to the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) in December 2023 will now impose on employers, including Local Governments, a positive duty to prevent sexual harassment and sex-based harassment. The legislative changes switch the focus from employers reacting to a complaint of harassment to a focus on employers taking proactive steps to prevent discrimination and harassment from occurring in the first place. Combined with obligations on employers to take proactive steps to manage workplace health and safety risks arising from psychosocial hazards, senior leaders, managers, HR and safety professionals working in Local Governments will benefit from understanding how they can demonstrate the positive and definitive actions your Local Government has implemented to prevent inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. 

Target Audience

Senior leaders, HR Managers, CEOs of Local Governments.
