Chan, A., Bytheway, Z, Oldfield, J., Loney-Howes, R., & Heydon, G. 2023. “Overwhelmed and Frustrated: Experiences of workplace sexual harassment and discrimination; the barriers faced with the legal system”, JobWatch and RMIT survey and data analysis report. Melbourne, Australia.


With the high volume of sexual harassment and discrimination calls to the JobWatch Telephone Information Service, JobWatch was interested in understanding the gap in justice system data about the non-legal and legal actions that are taken by workers after being provided with information about their issue. To address this information gap, JobWatch undertook a survey of these TIS callers.

227 people responded to the JobWatch 2022 Workplace Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Survey and 202 people consented to share their response in this research report.
