Project status: In progress

Despite legal prohibition, sexual harassment is a persistent workplace issue with significant costs for individuals and organisations.

Drawing on qualitative and quantitative methods, the research investigates the various manifestations of sexual harassment across a range of workplaces contexts. The project also addresses organisational and institutional understandings and responses to sexual harassment and other forms of gender inequality and the longer term impacts for individual "targets".

The project outcomes will contribute to more effective policy development and implementation in workplaces and by human rights and other bodies.
