Vicarious liability

Employers can be held legally responsible for the conduct of their employees, including:

  • sexual harassment;
  • unlawful discrimination;
  • bullying; and
  • victimisation.

Claims can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and have the potential to bankrupt your business.

You have a legal responsibility to take all reasonable steps to prevent unlawful conduct 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.

At Supportah, we offer 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.
