Sexual Harassment and Bullying 2018 - Part 1 - Investigating Sexual Harassment and Bullying - 15 May 2018 (On Demand)

Description

The Legal Issues

Sexual harassment and workplace bullying are major problems in New Zealand.

Recent cases in the media have proven that sexual harassment can affect business reputation. Bullying and harassment can lead to a staggering loss of productivity, high staff turnover, and health and safety prosecution.
