Sexual Harassment Claims
Most sexual harassment cases occur in the workplace. In 2009 to 2010, 21% of Australian Human Rights Commission complaints were sex related and 88% of those occurred in the workplace. However, sexual harassment can happen in public and private settings including school, university, sports teams, online or over the phone.
