Contact Officers

About this course

Contact Officers are often the initial point of contact for a complaint and an integral part of any rational business approach to managing the risks posed by inappropriate and unlawful behaviour in the workplace.

Considering the importance of EEO, work health and safety (“WHS”) legislation and the existing penalties for breaching these laws, no organisation can afford to be exposed to the risks posed by bullying and harassment.
