We are experts at negotiating significant compensation payouts for our clients.
What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment is any unwelcome behaviour that is sexual in nature that offends, intimidates or humiliates.
It can include touching, staring or leering, inappropriate comments, displaying offensive messages, posters or screen savers, or repeated requests for dates or sex.
It can also include messages and images sent via text message or on social media.
Workplace sexual harassment can happen in the office or work site, or anywhere that is work related, including conference and function centres, hotels, cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and even in taxis.
The behaviour does not have to be repeated or on-going to be unlawful.
Sexual harassment is not interaction, flirtation, or friendship which is mutual or consensual.
What is discrimination?
Discrimination happens when someone is treated less favourably than someone else because of an a particular attribute they may have.
Attributes are things like ethnic background, skin colour, race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political and union activity, marital status and parental responsibilities – among many others.
Discrimination can happen at work, or when you are applying for and living in accommodation like a rental property, and it can also happen when you access goods and services.
