What is Sexual Harassment
If you were to read the Australian Human Rights Commission’s article on sexual harassment, It states any unwanted or intimidating sexual advances made on an employee is sexual harassment. Whether it be a fellow employee, manager, boss or customer.
Sexual harassment can be interpreted as physical or verbal and can also include text messages and emails. Requests for sex or unwanted sexual favours, physical assault, indecent exposure and stalking are the most common forms of sexual harassment.
Sexual Harassment Claims
If you, or someone you know have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, contact us for advice.
Be advised there is a time limit for making a claim for sexual harassment or abuse. It’s very important that you seek advice at the earliest convenience. The applicable time limit depends on your circumstances and the claim you’re making.
Even if you think the relevant time limit has passed, you should still get advice.
