Minister Wants Sexual Harassment Bill Passed By Second Half Of Year
Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange, says the Government is working to have the Sexual Harassment Bill passed into law by the second half of the calendar year.
The Bill, which outlines the types of conduct that constitute sexual harassment and prohibits certain related conduct, was tabled by Miss Grange in the House of Representatives in July last year.
Since then, a Joint Select Committee of Parliament, which was appointed to consider and report on the Bill, has been hearing inputs from organisations and individuals about how to make the law better and more meaningful.
