Completed the DiSC day program with Judy. It was extremely insightful and it highlights the value in developing an understanding in this area to assist in team management. The indentification of my management profile and learning how to target communication to individual profiles will ensure more meaningful interactions with each of member of my team, making for an even more harmonious work place. I couldnt recommended it more highly.

Zenith HR and Judy Barker have literally transformed the HR, IR and WHS face of our business in the last four months. I have never worked with such a professional consultancy. Judy and her team have assisted us in embedding a new HRIS, a full suite of policies, procedures and position descriptions, full award review and upgraded our contracts and payroll processes. I would not hesitate to recommend Zenith and Judy as the literal zenith of the HR profession!

We recently held a DiSC Management Workshop, the first of if it’s kind in our workplace and a first for many participants. Judy was a fantastic facilitator and every one really enjoyed the day and took something from it. Definitely looking forward to more opportunities with Zenith in the Leadership Development space.

On 10 September 2021, the Sex Discrimination and Fair Work (Respect at Work) Amendment Act 2021 (Respect at Work amendments) took effect.

The changes to the Fair Work Act aim to:

They include:

  • introducing stop sexual harassment orders
  • defining sexual harassment
  • clarifying that sexual harassment at work can be a valid reason for dismissal
  • providing compassionate leave for miscarriage.

 

Summary of changes

The Respect at Work Amendment Act aims to make sure more workers are protected and empowered to address unlawful sexual harassment in the workplace.

The Respect at Work Amendment Act has changed the Fair Work Act 2009 (FW Act) by:

  • introducing definitions of ‘sexually harass’ and ‘sexually harassed at work’
  • expanding the anti-bullying jurisdiction of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) to allow it to make orders to stop sexual harassment at work
  • clarifying that sexual harassment in connection with an employee’s employment can be a valid reason for dismissal.

The Respect at Work Amendment Act also enables an employee to access their compassionate leave entitlement if the employee or their current spouse or de facto partner has a miscarriage.
