Discrimination and Risk Management in the Workplace Podcast

This podcast is designed to increase ESSA members’ awareness of employee rights and employer responsibilities under federal and state anti-discrimination related legislation. The session will involve a discussion to clarify the difference between ethics and risk management, and then to clarify the meaning of key concepts and terms such as discrimination, harassment, bullying, vilification and victimisation. Practical examples will be used to illustrate these in the context of exercise and sport science, and a clinical exercise workplace case study will be used to promote an interactive learning activity for the participants. The session will culminate with a discussion of strategies to manage complaints and educate staff so that ESSA members can work effectively to promote respect and equality, as well as reduce the likelihood of discriminatory behaviour in the workplace.

The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 30 July 2013.

Presented by Dr Dennis Hemphill

With 25 years tertiary undergraduate and postgraduate teaching experience in sport, exercise and physical education philosophy and professional ethics, much of Dr Hemphill’s research and teaching has to do with anti-discrimination in sport, professional ethics, and inclusive curriculum. In his management role as Head of School, he was also responsible for managing staff misconduct incidents, most of which related to harassment or integrity issues and has been involved in the fitness industry in Canada, USA and Australia.  He is a current member of the Victoria University Human Research Ethics Committee and holds a BA(Honours) in Physical Education, MA in Sport Philosophy and a PhD in Sport Philosophy.
