The Pushworth Group has zero tolerance for any form of sexual harassment at any shows booked by them and as such have appointed Nichola Burton as the sexual harassment prevention contact for all Pushworth booked shows. Nicki is available to any performer who is booked by Pushworth for shows. Contact her here.
You should report any conduct that you believe is sexual harassment, whether it is against you or another person, to Nicki or to your booker directly.
You also have the right to seek advice or assistance from others (such as your union or lawyer), or seek assistance from or make a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
Whilst neither The Pushworth Group or the Venues and Promoters for your shows, employ performers for shows as employees, we assure you that timely, fair and appropriate action will be taken to address any complaint. Victimisation of any person who raises a complaint is unlawful.
We encourage you to speak up. Contact us. You are safe.
Everyone has a responsibility to promote appropriate standards of behaviour at all times. This includes during the performance on stage, in the breaks, rehearsals and pre or post shows or out of hours while attending industry-related functions.
Any person can be personally liable for engaging in sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment is any unwanted, unwelcome or uninvited behaviour of a sexual nature, which makes a person feel offended, humiliated or intimidated.
This includes staring or leering, unnecessary familiarity, such as deliberately brushing up against you or unwelcome touching, suggestive comments or jokes, insults or taunts of a sexual nature, intrusive questions or statements about your private life, displaying posters, magazines or screen savers of a sexual nature, sending sexually explicit emails or text messages, inappropriate advances on social networking sites, accessing sexually explicit internet sites, requests for sex or repeated unwanted requests to go out on dates.
Some forms of behaviour may also be considered to be an offence under criminal law, such as physical assault, indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking or obscene communications.
Be clear with your Consensual behaviours. Establish clear boundaries. Level up in your own personal Self Care strategies.
And finally, we recommend you research the many safety apps available for women that can track, alert, guide and assist you when needed.
