New Chambers is committed to fostering a workplace in which all persons are welcome, safe and able to work free from any form of harassment, discrimination, vilification and victimisation. Inappropriate workplace conduct has no place at New Chambers.
In 2015, New Chambers adopted the following guidelines approved by the Bar Council of the New South Wales Bar Association:
- the Model Harassment, Discrimination, Vilification and Victimisation Best Practice Guideline
- the Model Bullying Best Practice Guideline
- the Model Grievance Handling Best Practice Guideline
New Chambers’ inclusive approach to the workplace is further supported by its formal Parental Leave Policy, adopted 16 October 2019 in implementation of the Model Parental and Other Extended Leave Best Practice Guideline approved by the Bar Council of the New South Wales Bar Association.
New Chambers is dedicated to actively employing these guidelines and policy in practice. The barristers, staff and board of New Chambers are aware of the need to consciously create and maintain a working environment supportive of equality and diversity.Back to all
