AUSTRALIA: Sexual Harassment In The Workplace: Two Year Limit Imposed On The Use Of Term Contracts (February 2023 Update)
December 2022 was a busy month in Australia's Federal Parliament for workplace relations reforms. The Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) Act 2022 (Secure Jobs, Better Pay Act) and the Anti-Discrimination and Human Rights Legislation Amendment (Respect at Work) Act 2022 (Respect at Work Act) were both passed. These Acts bring with them, among other things, wide-ranging impacts on employer obligations with respect to sexual and sex-based harassment.
In our latest Australia Employment briefing, Stephanie Nicol and Laure-Elise Kenworthy cover some of those changes along with a non-exhaustive checklist of matters for employers to consider when developing a strategy for compliance.
