Bullying, Harassment and Sexual Harassment in the Workplace | Friday 14 June, 10am - 11am
Bullying and harassment and alleged sexual harassment within a workplace is a challenging area for employers to deal with. The implications can touch workers compensation, discrimination and procedural fairness matters. This webinar will cover the critical steps to take when you become aware of a potential problem or allegations are brought to your attention.
