Crossing the Line: Flirting vs Sexual Harassment

The recent media attention on sexual misconduct in Hollywood is a turning point; what may have been considered 'innocent flirting' in the 70s and 80s is increasingly being called what it is - unwanted harassment. The public condemnation of film mogul Harvey Weinstein's conduct has emboldened people to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against other celebrities, in what some have described as the 'Weinstein ripple effect'. There has been a significant shift in recent years in…See More

Workplace Party Pitfalls and Perils (A Christmas Story)

At a time when workers increasingly work remotely, communicate online or use hot desks, the annual staff Christmas party is a valuable opportunity to get everyone interacting face to face. A Christmas party is also a good way of getting staff who rarely see one another during the working week to meet, to reward staff for hard work, to celebrate the success of the past year, and to motivate employees for the year ahead. At the same time, it is essential that reasonable steps are taken to manage…See More

When Gender is Irrelevant: Male-On-Male Workplace Harassment

Sexual harassment and predatory behaviour can happen to anybody. When most people think about this type of conduct, it is generally in the context of male-to-female harassment or, perhaps more rarely, female-to-male harassment. However, this is simply not the case - sexual harassment can be perpetrated by anybody towards anybody. A recent decision of the Civil and Administrative Tribunal of NSW highlights the potential for employees to be victims of sexual harassment and victimisation in the…See More

How Medical Evidence Supports an Unbiased Investigation

When claims of abuse in care come to light, strong emotions can arise for all concerned. It is not surprising that when an unexplained injury is uncovered, family members, care staff, and employers will want immediate answers. However, it is vital that employers maintain clear thinking and remain objective when investigating allegations of abuse in care. Engaging an external workplace investigator can be helpful in maintaining neutrality, and conducting a detailed, unbiased investigation.…See More

'I Was Sent to Coventry' and Other Social Bullying Techniques

When we think of bullying, the clichés of schoolyard taunts might spring to mind. Yet as we learn more about the wide-ranging techniques of bullying, it is clear that this deeply complex phenomenon can be hard to pin down. For example, being ignored, or made an outcast in any situation - 'sent to Coventry' - can be highly distressing. This insidious brand of social bullying unfortunately arises in many workplaces, causing pain and anxiety for victims.WHAT IS BULLYING? Bullying can be physical…See More

Grooming, or an Error in Judgment?

No employer likes to think that one of their staff members might deal inappropriately with a client, or even could possibly commit a criminal act.
