About this course

Bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment can cause major harm to the wellbeing of individuals. While anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws differ between jurisdictions, the principles remain similar. Every workplace is affected by these laws.

Breaches can incur heavy costs for organisations, including reputational damage, compensation orders, negatively impact workplace productivity, and increase staff turnover.
