Diversity Australia is one of Australia’s leading independent external auditors of workplace compliance for businesses potentially at risk. Make your operations transparent to avoid damaging publicity and hefty fines that may result from non-compliance.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is unlawful and can cause significant harm to those who experience it. It can also be costly for employers, exposing them to legal liability and increasing staff turnover.
Under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010, employers must take reasonable and proportionate measures to eliminate sexual harassment in their workplaces.
What we examine
We provide a range of Audit and investigational services, from dealing with informal complaints to significant and complex formal investigations. We are experienced in dealing with complaints from operational to senior executive and board level, including liaising with unions involved in representing parties who have made a complaint.
Our independent workplace auditors and investigations are not limited to dealing with matters of evidence but can also provide insight into underlying causes of the complaint. Such as lack of capability, cultural issues, process failures and high risk management styles.
We examine whether organisations provide their staff with workplaces free from sexual harassment.
We look at:
- the prevalence and nature of sexual harassment in organisations
- procedures, policies, training and communication
- the effectiveness of organisations complaint handling.
