Good Practice Indicators Framework for Preventing and Responding to Workplace Sexual Harassment
The Good Practice Indicators Framework for Preventing and Responding to Workplace Sexual Harassment (the Framework) contains intended outcomes and indicators of good practice for employers with respect to preventing and responding to sexual harassment. These indicators capture the factors likely to lead to respectful and inclusive workplaces which minimise the risk of sexual harassment.
The Framework also includes both 'simple' and 'mature' measurements, allowing employers of different sizes to assess their performance against each indicator.
Consistent with the Respect@Work Report, the Framework takes a holistic approach that looks beyond policies, training and complaint-handling procedures, and is:
- person-centred and trauma-informed
- practical and outcomes-focused
- adaptable for employers of all sizes and in all industries, and
- designed to minimise harm to workers
Indicators are organised around key areas for action identified in the Respect@Work Report:
- Risk assessment and transparency
Please note that this resource is a tool to assist organisations to prevent and respond to workplace sexual harassment. The Framework is not a comprehensive statement of all legal responsibilities for employers, and should not be treated as such. Parties should seek independent professional advice on their duties and obligations under the laws in their jurisdictions.
