Discrimination and harassment in the workplace are regulated extensively by state and federal legislation. This legislation places obligations on employers to ensure they have a workplace free from discrimination and harassment. If employers do not comply with these obligations, they can be found vicariously liable for the discriminating or harassing conduct of their employees and contractors.
Ai Group provides an extensive range of services that can assist in maintaining a workplace free from discrimination and harassment. These services include:
Ai Group has a team of advocates and lawyers who are experienced in managing complaints of discrimination or harassment.
As an employer, if you receive a complaint of harassment or discrimination and don't know how to manage the allegations, Ai Group can assist you and is regularly called on to conduct independent third party investigations of complaints through its incorporated legal practice, Ai Group Workplace Lawyers. Our specialised team has been engaged by Australia's leading employers to investigate and advise on serious and sensitive cases of workplace behaviour from junior staff to management and executives.
Where matters proceed beyond investigation we can assist with complaints made through State or Federal Tribunals and provide effective advice and representation to resolve these claims.
