The My work rights project aimed to raise awareness of women’s rights at work. Experiencing harassment and discrimination can have real, negative impacts on your confidence and wellbeing. If you ignore this behaviour it may happen again. Quitting the job entirely might just mean it happens to someone else.
The Commission’s research with young Victorian women in 2011 showed that:
- a third have experienced workplace sexual harassment
- more than a third have been discriminated against at work.
We also discovered that young women often don’t make a complaint about discrimination or sexual harassment at work. They are more likely to resign.
