We have an abundance of data and calls for reform, including the Power to Prevent coalition of over diverse organisations spearheaded by Victoria Legal Aid. I also learned that Australia is now out of step with best practice in addressing the problem. As part of a Churchill Fellowship I looked at how other nations are preventing workplace sexual harassment. Overseas such organisations also ensure compliance with the law, protecting employees without the need for them to come forward and bring a claim. A code of practice under our work health and safety laws can guide employers in how to ensure their businesses are places where all their staff can thrive. Safe Work Australia recognises that sexual harassment poses a risk to health and is covered by work health and safety laws. One of the most frustrating things about my job is knowing just how strong our legal protections are, then seeing how rarely they are brought to life. I know these reforms would improve the lives of the people I see — people just like Alice and Lydia — by changing our workplace culture and creating sexual harassment free workplaces. Our equality laws are meaningless if they are not complied with, relied upon or enforced.
