Workplace sexual harassment in the NT

Posted on: Fri 20 Jul 2018

With the issue of sexual harassment gaining traction thanks in part to the #MeToo movement, the same can’t be said for women who work in the Northern Territory.

The NT Anti-Discrimination Commission’s annual report shows that women are less likely to lodge a complaint, with some unaware of what constitutes such unprofessional behaviour which includes suggestive inappropriate comments or subtle touching and groping.

Commissioner Sally Sievers spoke to Breakfast‘s Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann about why such incidents go unreported.
