Sexual Harassment Damages Post-Taylor

[Please note this event has beenĀ cancelled - please direct any questions to [email protected]]

Damages in sexual harassment cases have recently undergone a transformation in the wake of the Federal Court of Australia decision in Taylor v August and Pemberton Pty Ltd [2023] FCA 1313. In that case, Katzmann J set a new benchmark for general damages in sexual harassment cases in Australia. NSW Labor Lawyers are organising a CPD session for interested practitioners on the key developments in Taylor, the likely impact of the decision on future sexual harassment cases, and the intertwine between such damages and the new positive duty on employers in Australia to prevent sexual harassment.

Dilan Mahendra is a barrister at Quay Chambers, Sydney, specialising in industrial and employment law, sexual harassment and discrimination law, and restraints of trade. Mia Pantechis is a Principal and Penny Parker is a Senior Associate in the Employment and Industrial Law Section at Maurice Blackburn. All speakers were acting in relation to the Taylor decision and are well positioned to provide attendees with an update on developments in this area.

The event is free for members of the Society. For non-members, we ask that you make a $5 co-payment on the day of the event.

If this educational activity is relevant to your immediate or long-term needs in relation to your professional development and practice of the law, then you can claim one point per hour of formal presentation (Substantive Law CPD).
