Managing a report?

If you are managing a report of sexual misconduct within your workplace, your initial response is very important.

  • Listen to what they are telling you and let them talk at their own pace.
  • Believe them.
  • Do not ask 'why' questions.
  • Remind them that the assault was not their fault and acknowledge their bravery in coming forward.

SeMPRO is available to provide advice and guidance on your role as a support person as well as your responsibilities as a commander or manager.
