Vicarious liability

As an employer, you can be held legally responsible for the conduct of your employees, including unlawful sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and victimisation.

Claims can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and court-ordered compensation, and have the potential to bankrupt your business.

You have a legal responsibility to take all reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and victimisation from happening in your workplace.

How to protect your business

The best way to protect your business from costly claims for discrimination and sexual harassment is to have robust policies in place, and to provide regular training for your staff.

Industrial Relations Claims offers professional workplace training sessions delivered by our team of expert industrial relations specialists and discrimination lawyers.

Participants will learn about unreasonable behaviour, and their rights and responsibilities when it comes to sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and victimisation.

They will also learn how culture and patterns of unreasonable behaviour, such as bullying, can affect a company’s ability to defend a claim of discrimination or sexual harassment.

They will also learn about the financial and emotional cost of unlawful and unacceptable workplace behaviour.

Our training is affordable, and can be tailored to suit employees, managers or executives.

Professional training is vital to protect your business from expensive and time consuming claims.
