A report shows the importance of social awareness in Australia’s workplace
The Government’s social awareness campaign has helped improve workers’ awareness and skills, but the report from the Australia Institute found the Government has not made any significant changes to the way workers are trained.
The report also found that the Government’s efforts have not kept pace with the changes in technology and the impact of technological change.
“The Government’s implementation of social consciousness has been inconsistent,” the report said.
“In some cases, the Government made the necessary investments in the technology that had been required to train workers to identify and report incidents of bias, discrimination, and harassment, but those investments did not provide sufficient training to improve workers awareness and social awareness.”
The report found that training to recognise and report bias was not sufficient to meet the needs of current and future workers.
“For many workers, social awareness training is inadequate,” the study said.
“[It] fails to include a discussion of how workers can use social media to raise awareness about the issues facing them.”
Workplace discrimination A new report from Workplace Discrimination Commissioner Katherine Turner found there were systemic barriers in Australia that prevented workers from reporting workplace discrimination.
In its report, Ms Turner said the Government should focus on training more people to spot discrimination.
She also recommended the Government work to introduce new legislation to protect workers from workplace discrimination in the future.
She said the introduction of legislation would help workers report discrimination, increase their workplace rights, and reduce the level of retaliation against workers who report discrimination.
“If a worker believes their workplace has been the target of discrimination, the employer may use a variety of mechanisms to prevent them reporting the discrimination,” Ms Turner’s report said in a summary of its findings.
In a workplace with a range of employees, some workers may have little knowledge of their rights or protections.””
Other employers may choose to retaliate against workers by making it impossible for workers to lodge a complaint.”
In a workplace with a range of employees, some workers may have little knowledge of their rights or protections.
“The Government should make clear that it will not tolerate retaliation or retaliation against any worker for reporting discrimination.”
The government has a number of policies in place to combat discrimination and retaliation against employees, but many employees say the Government does not have the resources to train them to spot workplace discrimination and retaliate.
Workplace equality Minister Greg Hunt said the government is taking action to address workplace discrimination, but did not have enough time to implement new legislation or train people.
Mr Hunt said workers are entitled to report any form of discrimination and discrimination-related incidents, but he did not know how many workers had received training.
“There are many opportunities for employers to improve the way they treat people and the way the workplace works,” he said.
He said the Coalition Government has increased the funding to support the National Discrimination Commissioner, and was providing $500,000 for a new national office.
