Respect @ Work resources for providers
TEQSA has published a sector update to support higher education providers in implementing recommendations from the Respect @ Work report.
The Respect @ Work report provides recommendations about the prevention and response to sexual assault and sexual harassment in the workplace.
Two of the recommendations relate directly to higher education workplaces.
Since August 2017, TEQSA has worked alongside the sector to improve and assure providers’ capacity to prevent and respond to sexual assault and sexual harassment, with a focus on students’ safety and wellbeing.
The Respect @ Work Inquiry and its resulting recommendations focus on sexual harassment in the workplace, which includes staff in higher education work settings. Consequently, TEQSA’s focus in this area has broadened to include this.
