Respect and Dignity

Discrimination

We expect our employees to treat each other, our customers and our suppliers with respect and dignity. We train our employees on these expectations, but sometimes we do have issues which escalate to external jurisdictions. Nine employee claims were lodged in Australia at discrimination tribunals (both State and Federal) during the year. Three of these claims were resolved within the financial year and the remainder are either now resolved or we are working towards a resolution.
