Featured Course 
Understanding and Addressing Workplace Sexual Harassment for Retail and Hospitality Managers
The Australian Retailers Association, in collaboration with the Australian Human Rights Commission, have released a new course designed to enhance our sector’s understanding of workplace sexual harassment, and the rights and responsibilities of employers and workers.
It is crucial that employers understand that irrespective of their size or available resources, organisations and businesses are obligated to fulfil the positive duty as mandated by the Sex Discrimination Act of 1984.
In just 3 hours of self-paced online learning time, this course equips learners with invaluable insights into understanding the origins of sexual harassment, its repercussions on both businesses and communities, how it can thrive if left unchecked, and, most significantly, how to cultivate a harassment-free workplace.
We encourage employers to consider investing in training for their entire workforce. Contact our team at to learn more.
