Sexual Harassment in Australia project

Related information

The Queensland University of Technology and the University of South Australia are currently undertaking a project about sexual harassment in Australia - a persistent workplace issue with considerable costs for individuals and organisations.

The project aims to:

  • better understand the contexts and the factors that shape individual and organisational understandings of sexual harassment as a workplace issue
  • assess the impact of the legal prohibition of workplace sexual harassment on the patterns of conduct which occur and the range of organisational responses to the problem
  • identify the impact of sexual harassment on those exposed to it, including their experiences and responses and longer term employment and wellbeing outcomes
  • contribute to improved policy and practice to prevent and respond to sexual harassment, by workplaces and human rights and other bodies.
