General Counsel

You may have heard about recent changes relating to positive obligations for organisations to maintain “psychosocially” safe and respectful workplaces. But what does that mean in practice, and what does in-house counsel need to action to ensure compliance?

In this session, we will cover:

  • Present legal definitions of bullying, discrimination, and harassment, and potential claim pathways
  • Recent changes relating to the positive duty to eliminate sexual harassment and discrimination, prohibition on hostile working environments, and psychosocial safety
  • What organisations need to consider in ensuring compliance and creating a respectful and inclusive workplace culture
  • What further policy changes may be coming

This session will be relevant for anyone in an in-house counsel, even if not directly responsible for working with people and culture teams.

In South Australia, practitioners are required to undertake one hours’ CPD activity relevant to Bullying, Discrimination and Harassment each CPD year.

This in-person session is open to all organisations, excluding other legal service providers.
