Bullying, Sexual Harassment and Unlawful Discrimination

CQUniversity is committed to providing a workplace free from bullying, sexual harassment and unlawful discrimination. CQUniversity’s commitment to personal safety and wellbeing means we are proud to support the national Universities Australia “Respect. Now. Always.” Campaign. This campaign highlights the determination of Australia’s universities to ensure that our students and staff are safe from violence, sexual assault and sexual harassment. For more information about the campaign and university support and security please go to www.cqu.edu.au/respectnowalways..

All staff have a responsibility to ensure that their actions do not negatively affect another staff and/or a student's career, health or well-being and are consistent with the University Code of Conduct. A staff member found to have bullied, unlawfully discriminated or sexually harassed another staff member or student or to have condoned such behaviour will be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the provisions of the current Enterprise Agreement.

Staff who need advice on matters relating to bullying, sexual harassment and unlawful discrimination should contact the Training & Equity Officer on 4930 9113.
