Sometimes it is simply not practical to make an internal report to an employer about workplace harassment. Sometimes even when workplace harassment is reported, no action (or only token action) is taken.
In those circumstances it may be appropriate to consider whether you ought to take a complaint outside of your workplace to try and obtain appropriate relief and/or compensation. Complaints can be made to a government agency such as the Fair Work Commission or you may take another route, such as seeking to negotiate a settlement with your employer or making a Workers Compensation claim.
