A Roadmap for Respect: Government response to the Respect@Work Report

On 8 April 2021, the Australian Government released ‘A Roadmap for Respect: Preventing and Addressing Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces’ (Roadmap for Respect).

The Roadmap for Respect responds to all 55 of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s recommendations outlined in the Respect@Work report. The Roadmap for Respect provides a clear and comprehensive path forward for Australia to prevent and address sexual harassment and support meaningful cultural change in our workplaces.

Respect@Work Council

The Respect@Work Council (the Council) brings together leaders from key government regulators and policy-makers responsible for sexual harassment to improve coordination, consistency and clarity across existing legal and regulatory frameworks, and to identify ways to promote safer workplaces.

The Council held its first meeting on Friday 19 March 2021.
