Discrimination is the treatment of another person or group in a less favourable way because of a characteristic of that person or group. This is unlawful where the characteristic is protected by law.
Discrimination can occur either directly (ie. where a person is treated less favourably another person in the same or similar situation), or indirectly (ie. where a requirement or condition is imposed in relation to a class of individuals, that has the effect of disadvantaging people with a certain characteristic).
Characteristics that are unlawful to discriminate on the basis of include, but are not limited to:

As with discrimination, bullying can also be direct or indirect.
The following are examples of bullying:

For example, providing feedback in relation to performance, setting goals and deadlines and performance managing an employee is not bullying.
Sexual harassment is an unwelcome sexual advance, unwelcome request for sexual favours or other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature which makes a person feel offended, humiliated and/or intimidated, where a reasonable person would anticipate that reaction in the circumstances. This means that sexual harassment can occur even when the person engaging in the relevant behaviour does not intend to offend, humiliate or intimidate another person.
Sexual harassment covers a broad range of prohibited behaviour. The following are some examples of conduct that may amount to sexual harassment:
Behaviour will not be sexual harassment if it is consensual and reciprocated.
In addition to prohibiting discrimination, bullying and harassment in the workplace, the Company prohibits victimisation of any individual who has, or proposes to, make a complaint to the Company or any other person or body, in relation to conduct that breaches this policy. Victimisation of any witness to such a complaint is also prohibited.
Any breach of this policy may lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or engagement as relevant.
