This template is a basic policy for use by employers to protect employees against harassment, bullying and discrimination in the workplace. It is especially suitable for small to medium businesses or not for profit organisations.
The Fair Work Act 2009 (Clth) and associated legislation detail employee protections against such conduct.
Commonly, workplace policies are not documented at all or are poorly documented. This can create misunderstandings and problems if things should go wrong.
This Policy will provide reassurance to both Employer and Employee, as both will have an understanding of appropriate workplace behaviour.
It is ready to download without needing any information to be inputted.
It should form part of a policy manual containing all policies relevant to a particular workplace. As a new policy, it must be brought to the attention of everyone in the workplace with a written request that it be read and then be complied with.
This template is provided by LegalRocket to the Employer to ensure compliance with its legal obligations. It is provided free of charge and on the terms and conditions set out on the LegalRocket website.
