In 2020 the Australian Human Rights Commission released its Respect@Work report resulting from the extensive national inquiry into sexual harassment in workplaces, and on the back of the recommendations contained within that report, the amended Respect@Work legislation is now in place and affects all businesses.
To assist its members in their compliance on this issue, the Visual Media Association (VMA) have provided various proactive tools and resources to members, as well as a recent webinar on the issue.
This includes related policies and procedures, leadership statements, and a workplace checklist to identify any potential risks and specific actions needed to ensure an inclusive, safe and respectful workplace.
Further, members are able to speak with the VMA Workplace Relations team to manage company specific issues.
