In response to the underreporting of bullying, harassment and discrimination highlighted in the Equal Opportunity Commission report into the legal profession, the Legal Profession Conduct Commissioner has launched a free on-line reporting tool for lawyers and others working in the legal profession to anonymously report instances of inappropriate personal behaviour.
The data collected through this tool, Speak safely, will, in part, guide further steps to be taken to combat inappropriate personal behaviour. Anyone who has experienced sexual harassment, discrimination or bullying in the legal profession, but who is unwilling to make a formal complaint, is encouraged to use Speak safely.
