Research Report: Workplace Sexual Harassment and Discrimination

The research report by JobWatch employment rights legal centre, RMIT and the University of Wollongong, “Overwhelmed and Frustrated: Experiences of workplace sexual harassment and discrimination; the barriers faced with the legal system”, was released on Wednesday 8 November 2023.

“It’s been the hardest, most isolating and damaging experience I have ever been through. There’s little to no support and feels like I’ve been fighting a losing battle since the day I made the initial report to my employers.” (Survey Respondent)

There is a notable gap in justice system data about the non-legal and legal actions that are taken by workers after experiencing workplace sexual harassment and discrimination. This new research report lifts the veil from these experiences, and shares the voices of those impacted, using survey data and responses from callers to the JobWatch Telephone Information Service.

Law reform

We take a leading role in government advocacy, media campaigning and law reform activity to promote workplace justice and equity for all workers.

We conduct research into employment and industrial law issues. Our research is based on real experiences of workers as sourced from our Telephone Information Service and the associated database of employment law statistics.

We make submissions to a broad range of employment and industrial relations government inquiries, drawing upon our expertise to articulate the human impact of government policy decisions and legislation.
