Urgent law reform needed to prevent sexual harassment at work

One in three Australians have been sexually harassed at work within the past five years.
It is prevalent and pervasive. But it is also preventable.
Everyone deserves to be safe at work and free from sexual harassment, but our current system is failing us.
At WIRE, we are proud to be part of the Power2Prevent Coalition: a group of more than 60 diverse community organisations, unions, academics, peak bodies, health professionals, lawyers and victim-survivors advocating for urgent reform to prevent sexual harassment at work.
In this joint statement, we call on the Australian Government to implement all remaining recommendations of the Respect@Work report in full and without further delay. This includes urgently amending our laws to create eight key changes as outlined in the statement. We want actions, not words.
