You may be uncomfortable or even scared to approach someone for help if you have experienced or observed unwanted behaviour.  We understand this and have created a network of Discrimination and Harassment Advisers (PDF, 96 KB) who are available to talk though the issues confidentially and guide you in the right direction.

What can you do if you have a concern?

  • Deal with the matter individually if you feel comfortable doing so
  • Contact a Discrimination and Harassment Adviser (PDF, 96 KB)
  • Speak to your supervisor (or their manager)
  • Seek advice and support from People and Capability
  • Speak with a union representative
  • Make a formal complaint using the University’s Complaint Management process
  • Lodge a complaint with the relevant state Equal Opportunity or Anti-Discrimination Commission or the Federal Human Rights Commission

Don't forget, free confidential support and counselling is available through the University’s Employee Assistance Program provider Access EAP.

Resources for Managers and Supervisors

Managers, team leaders and supervisors who are managing complex and challenging staff matters also have access to a specialised service provided by Access EAP called Manager Support. This service is provided by senior Access EAP counsellors through telephone or face-to-face consultations - and can assist with situations that involve concerns with workplace communication and behaviour.

What if a student discloses sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner and family & domestic violence?
