Anti-discrimination, Bullying & Harassment Policy

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that SysTec RTO provides a fair and supportive environment free from all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying and that all staff, contractors, clients and course participants comply with relevant legislation and guidelines.

Scope

This policy applies directly to all SysTec RTO operations, services and personnel.

Policy Statement

Discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, ability, disability, sexuality and religion is illegal and unacceptable.

Discrimination is the treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favour of or against, a person based on the group, class, or category to which that person belongs to rather than on individual merit. It includes behaviour such as less favourable treatment, unfair exclusion, and asking discriminatory questions.

SysTec RTO has a responsibility to provide an environment that is free from discrimination.

SysTec RTO will attempt to ensure that all course content and online material is free of discriminatory content.

SysTec RTO takes great care to ensure that all course participants and staff members are treated fairly and equitably and that everyone on SysTec RTO premises complies with anti discrimination legislation.

SysTec RTO will ensure that all groups who are affected by decision making outcomes are consulted, their input will be treated fairly, and decision making processes and outcomes will be meritorious and free from discrimination.

All decision making processes will be open to scrutiny, with processes for appealing decisions and for regular review of processes to be adopted.

Harassment, victimisation and bullying are unwelcome, unsolicited and non reciprocated behaviour and it is based on an inappropriate assumption of power. Harassment, victimisation and bullying may take many forms; it may be verbal, in writing, online or physical and it is distressing to those experiencing it.

As in any area of human interaction, the boundaries of what constitutes harassment, victimisation and bullying may vary from person to person. Employees and course participants of SysTec RTO should recognise and respect the boundaries set by others.

SysTec RTO considers that harassment, victimisation and bullying by or toward employees; contractors; suppliers, course participants and or clients is unacceptable and it is illegal.

Persons who believe they are experiencing discrimination, harassment and or bullying should refer the matter to the Managing Director of SysTec RTO immediately so that prompt action can be taken.

All reports of discrimination, harassment, victimisation and or bullying will be treated seriously, impartially and sensitively.
