Image

Screen Australia has today announced that the Code of Conduct to Assist the Prevention of Sexual Harassment has been finalised and is now in effect. Screen Australia approved projects from now on must adhere to the Code as a condition of their production funding.

“The Code sets a clear expectation that producers must make every effort to maintain a safe workplace where there is zero tolerance for sexual harassment,” said Screen Australia COO Fiona Cameron. “The Code of Conduct will bring the law into plain view, in plain English and provide pathways to address and resolve issues. A Code of Conduct is a simple way to set expectations and lead cultural change.”

Following consultation with industry, the Code has been finalised and can now be viewed in full here.

Screen Producers Australia (SPA) is working with its members, the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance and key stakeholders including Screen Australia to finalise an industry Code of Conduct and Policies relating to sexual harassment, harassment and bullying. SPA expects this work to conclude in the coming weeks. SPA will also be facilitating training for industry on the industry Code of Conduct and policies. It is hoped that a standard industry code will be put in place for all entertainment organisations in the future.
