Law Society forms sexual harassment working group

The New Zealand Law Society will be forming a working group that focuses on sexual harassment in the legal profession.

The Law Society’s action plan includes the development of an online portal and dedicated helpline to air workplace harassment concerns. The Law Society said that this will make it easier for people to “raise and discuss sensitive matters arising in their workplace.”

The organisation is also launching a free webinar on harassment, which is similar to the Law Society’s unconscious bias webinar last year.
