Revisions to the Workplace Bullying and Harassment - Policy and Procedure for MOP(S) Act Employees and Parliamentarians

What changes have been made to the policy?

The policy has been revised to incorporate additional information regarding sexual harassment in the workplace as a specific form of harassment. The changes were made in consultation with MOP(S) Act employees, through the Work Health and Safety Committee, and Parliamentarians. Where possible, definitions have been sourced directly from the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Information about making a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission has been included at Section C – Issues Resolution Procedure.

Additional resources have been added to Section E – Links to Further Information, with regard to sexual harassment.

Where can I access the revised policy?

The policy has been published on the M&PS website.

Should you require further information regarding the policy, please contact your Advice and Support Director.*
