Harassment, Sexual Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination are unlawful and are not tolerated in the Racing Industry. It is fundamental that the industry and its participants recognise and value the diversity of others, and ensure that the workplace and racing environment are free from harassment, sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination. This in turn provides clarity about who we are as an Industry, as employers and our normal expectations of each other. A safe, harmonious, respectful, inclusive environment also contributes significantly to the Industry’s aim to achieve a culture of performance excellence.
Racing NSW requires all organisations involved in the NSW Thoroughbred Racing Industry to achieve and maintain workplaces that are free from all forms of discrimination and harassment.
