  • Recognise as harassment any unwelcome verbal or physical behaviour. including sexual advances, when:

    • submission to this conduct is made implicitly or explicitly a term or condition of a persons education, employment or access to resources; or
    • submission or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for decisions affecting a person's education or employment prospects.
  • Recognise that harassment may consist of a single serious act or multiple persistent or pervasive acts, and that it further includes behaviour that ridicules, disparages, or abuses a person.
