Workplace sexual harassment and the law

By Tasha Levy|20 March 2020

While the rise of #MeToo movement has certainly shone a light on the prevalence of workplace sexual harassment, the legalities around victims’ rights and resources for assistance are still somewhat confusing to navigate.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Naomi Neilson is joined by Samantha Mangwana, practice leader and special counsel at Shine Lawyers, to discuss the findings and recommendations around the [email protected] National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces.

Samantha provides her insight into the kinds of damages that victims stand to receive, the complex nature of non-disclosure agreements, and whether the Australian Human Rights Commissions’ recommendations will be enough to bring about actual change.
