LPA Statement on Harassment and Bullying

LPA Statement on Harassment and Bullying

As the peak employer body for live performance in Australia, LPA strongly supports safe and respectful workplaces for everyone, without exception.

Workplaces should be non-threatening, respectful, safe and free from all forms of harassment. All employees have the right not to be sexually harassed or discriminated against in the workplace. That is the law. No excuses.

LPA has been developing new guides for the live performance industry to underpin a robust, industry-wide set of policies to prevent discrimination, harassment and bullying, and for procedures to deal with allegations of inappropriate conduct, harassment or bullying.

Many LPA members already have policies and protocols in place. However, there is an important role for LPA in providing our members with template policy and procedure guides and supporting the capability of all industry participants to meet their legal obligations as employers. 

We will work closely with the MEAA to address these serious issues and to drive cultural change across our industry.
