The Law Council of Australia’s National Attrition and Re-Engagement Study Report (NARS), published in 2014 identified that half of all women lawyers reported experiencing discrimination due to their gender and that one in four women reported experiencing sexual harassment at their workplace.

The event aims to address the important issues facing people in the workplace. There will be a presentation by our esteemed panel on the topics of:
·        What is sexual harassment?
·        What are the responsibilities of  firms; and
·        What remedies are available?
