Attention continues to focus on the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Media outlet Stuff has recently release findings from an audit of workplace reports of sexual harassment. Under Official Information Act (OIA) requests, Stuff requested information from more than 2000 public organisations. Of the 1397 organisations that replied, nearly all government departments, councils and District Health Boards (DHBs) responded. Both then Equal Employment Opportunities Human Rights Commissioner Jackie Blue and Under-Secretary for Justice (Domestic and Sexual Violence Issues) Jan Logie responded to the findings.

The Public Service Association has called for a national stocktake of workplace sexual harassment.
