Zero Tolerance Towards Violence Against Any Person in the Workplace

The Government has a position of zero tolerance towards violence against women under the Safe Homes, Safe Families, Tasmania's Family Violence Action Plan, and in support of Tasmanian Government agency efforts to obtain White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation.

With effect from 1 November 2016, relevant Treasurer's Instructions have been amended to require Government agencies to ensure that Government procurement and associated contractual documents contain specific clauses supporting the Government's position. These clauses set expectations with respect to the behaviour of Contractors procured to provide Government works and services in relation to zero tolerance towards violence against any person in the workplace.

An information sheet for Contractors is available.

Examples of clauses can be located in the procurement documentation templates prepared by the Crown Solicitor.
