Summary of Changes from Previous Version

16 April 2021 – Document updated to reflect unit title change for the Equity and Diversity Unit to Equity, Diversity and Support.


15 November 2016 - Policy amended to reflect unit title change of the 'Office of People and Culture' to the "Office of Human Resources".

8 July 2016 - policy amended to reflect the official name change of the University concurrent with the change to the University's Act and By-Law.

The amendments to the policy broaden its coverage to include carrying out functions in connection with the University at places that are external to University premises, eg a pub, a private residence, in the street; and insert a new clause to provide that consensual sexual behaviour at work (such as discussing sex or kissing) might be sexual harassment if it offends someone else who sees or hears that behaviour. Amendments have also been made to replace references to 'UWS' in accordance with the University's rebranding.
