Young women and work rights. Please don't resign - get professional advice on your work rights.


From Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission ~~~~~

We are currently reviewing our my work rights campaign and would like to receive your feedback. The ‘My work rights’ campaign aims to raise awareness of young women’s rights at work. Experiencing harassment and discrimination can have real, negative impacts on a person’s confidence and wellbeing.

Our research shows that among young Victorian women:
a third have experienced sexual harassment at work
more than a third have been discriminated against at work.

We also discovered that young women often don’t make a complaint about discrimination or sexual harassment. They are more likely to resign.

We’ve developed a quiz to help young women find out about their rights at work. Please send this update on to your networks and encourage them to promote it and take our short survey at myworkrights.com.au to help us improve the campaign. The survey is anonymous and takes 10 minutes or less to complete.

If you, or anyone you know have any questions about rights at work you can call the Commission’s Enquiry Line for a free and confidential chat on 1300 292 153 or email enquiries@veohrc.vic.gov.au.
