Employee psychosocial fact sheet: Work-related gendered violence including sexual harassment


What it contains

Work-related gendered violence is any action or behaviour, directed at any person, or that affects a person, because of their sex, gender or sexual orientation, or because they do not adhere to gender stereotypes, that creates a risk to health and safety.

Work-related gendered violence may be aimed directly at an individual or a group. It could also be behaviour that is not directed at anyone, but affects someone who is exposed to it or witnesses it.

This fact sheet outlines types of work-related gendered violence, what gendered violence might look like in the workplace and provides employees with information about reporting work-related gendered violence and what to do if they witness gendered violence in the workplace.
