WA mining company facing charges over sexual harassment documents

WorkSafe WA has charged a mining company for withholding documents relating to sexual harassment.

The company faces charges for failing to release documents to WorkSafe in 34 cases of alleged sexual harassment at three WA mine sites.

“The Work Health and Safety Act 2020 gives WorkSafe inspectors the right to request that documentation be received within a specified time period unless the person in charge of the business or undertaking has a reasonable excuse for not supplying the documents,” WorkSafe said on Thursday.

The case will be mentioned in the Perth Magistrates Court next month.
