Sexual Harassment

Under sections 24 (employees) and 25 (students) of the Western Australian Equal Opportunity Act 1984 a person is sexually harassed if:

  • they are subject to an unwelcome sexual advance, unwelcome request for sexual favours or other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature; and
  • the person reasonably believes if they reject or object to that behaviour they will be disadvantaged or they are disadvantaged.

Sexual harassment does not need to be repeated or continuous. It can involve a single incident. Sexual harassment of employees, colleagues, students and potential students is unlawful.
