Respect@Work finally passes Parliament!

On Monday 28 November the Respect At Work Bill passed the Australian Parliament.

Union members across Australia have been campaigning for this action and it's great to see that the Respect@Work Report recommendations have finally been enshrined in law.

In putting a positive duty on employers this legislation helps to put an end to the myth that sexual harassment is just "part of work." Sexual harassment can, should, and will be eliminated from Australian workplaces - and union members are committed to making that happen.

Well done to all members and activists who have not stopped campaigning for the protection of workers against sexual harassment at work.
