Statement on Safe Workplaces

The Australian Library and Information Association, Australian Publishers Association, Australian Society of Authors and the Australian Booksellers Association have released the following statement, ensuring that employees in these industries have fair and safe workplaces:

The Australian book industry peak bodies endorse safe workplaces, embrace diversity, accept no form of harassment, and encourage respectful behaviours. 

We have a shared policy to ensure that people in positions of authority do not abuse their powers; managers listen to and support their staff; staff behave appropriately to one another and to their customers and there is a fair and independent channel for reported issues. 

We encourage all our Members to adopt strong policies to ensure a fair workplace for everyone.
