Sexual harassment statement to the profession

On this Page

Sexual harassment of any kind is unacceptable.  For lawyers, it is also conduct that is capable of constituting professional misconduct.

In February 2019 we released a statement (see Sexual harassment in the Victorian Legal Profession below) making it clear that this issue will be a key focus area for us in the coming years: we will investigate sexual harassment complaints we receive, initiate our own complaints where appropriate, and in either case use the powers we have to address it.

Resources

We have produced a fact sheet on sexual harassment (see below) for the profession, with links to other resources.
