Anti-Discrimination Act (New South Wales)

Section 22A, Part 2A of the Act provides that a person sexually harasses another person if “the person makes an unwelcome sexual advance, or an unwelcome request for sexual favours, to the other person, or the person engages in other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature in relation to the other person, in circumstances in which a reasonable person, having regard to all the circumstances, would have anticipated that the other person would be offended, humiliated or intimidated.” Part 2A sets out various prohibitions against the harassment of employees, commission agents, contract workers and partners, and the circumstances in which the harassment may occur. On June 20, 2018, the Australian Human Rights Commission announced that it would undertake a national inquiry into sexual harassment in Australian workplaces at a federal level and make recommendations to address the issue.
