Podcast | Sexual Harassment at Work

Published 29 September 2022

In this episode of our podcast, we are honoured to be joined by Samantha Mangwana of Shine Lawyers. Samantha leads the Executive Employment and Partnership practice, and is a recognised expert on employment and discrimination law issues.

Samantha shares with the team some of her experiences from before, during, and after, the media focus of the #MeToo movement, both in the U.K. and locally here in Australia. We discuss employer obligations and the impact and response to sexual harassment in the workplace; risk factors and hierarchal environments; and whether Non-Disclosure Agreements, and the possible passing of legislation in these cases to limit them, will be at the expense of victims.
