Rather than protect victims of sexual harassment and discrimination, Australia’s patchwork system of non-disclosure agreements shields predators and exposes others to repeat behaviour, Kingsford Legal Centre’s Director Emma Golledge says.
The Australian Human Rights Commission’s recently released their landmark Respect@Work report highlighting that sexual harassment is widespread in Australian workplaces, with almost 2 in 5 women experiencing sexual harassment in the past 5 years.
The Justice Legislation Amendment Bill 2018, which passed through NSW Parliament this week, introduces welcome employment protections for pregnant women, according to Kingsford Legal Centre Director Anna Cody.
The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (the committee) has told the Australian Government it is failing to protect the human rights of Australian women and girls in many areas.
Kingsford Legal Centre acknowledges the Gadigal and Bidjigal Clans, who traditionally occupied the Sydney Coast.
