The very important topic of sexual harassment can come up in several categories of the law.
Such harassment can be a criminal offence, or a civil tort or cause of action, or it can attract damages from the Human Rights Commission or it can be very relevant in a claim in Employment Law.
We repeat those categories :
- A claim in the civil law of tort
- A claim to the Employment Court
- A claim to the Human Rights Commission
- A claim to the Police
For a start, we provide you with a direct link to the relevant part of the Website for the Human Rights Commissioner.

We also provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up ALL Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.
