Reclaim your life

Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and/or assault can unfortunately be prevalent in all aspects of society. It can occur at work, in a private or public settings and can take place online.

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination

Perpetrators of Harassment and Discrimination of a sexual nature can be direct and/or indirect in conduct, with many perpetrators covering-up their actions by gaslighting their victims and making them question whether they over-reacting or misinterpreting the situation.

This is often the case with indirect or subtle discrimination, which can often be systematic and ingrained in an organisation or an institution.

The Sex Discrimination Act prohibits sexual harassment, discrimination, and victimisation of all forms in all aspects of life inclusive of employment, education, the provision of goods and services, and other aspects of public life. What this means is it is unlawful to be discriminated against (directly or indirectly) for reasons relatively connected to your sex or gender or sexual orientation or identity.

If you are treated unfairly or treated less favourably due to your:

  • sex
  • gender
  • gender identity
  • intersex status
  • sexual orientation
  • marital or relationship status (including same sex and de facto couples); and
  • family responsibilities including pregnancy and breastfeeding.

You will generally have a right to claim compensation for discrimination.
