Same-sex Attracted Employees


The Department is committed to diversity and inclusion in the provision of the highest level of service to the Victorian Community, and in reflecting the diversity of the community across its workforce.

Providing workplaces which are safe, supportive and inclusive of same-sex attracted (gay, lesbian and bisexual) employees helps to build a culture of respect and dignity for all.

Same-sex attracted employees are entitled to fully participate in their workplace without fear of offensive, harassing, bullying or discriminatory behaviour.

Managers and school leaders are responsible for ensuring that the human rights of same-sex attracted employees are protected, and that workplaces are respectful and inclusive of employee sexual diversity.

The Same-sex Attracted Employees policy document provides policy and information concerning employees in same sex relationships including:

  • Legislation and Responsibilities
  • Sexual Diversity in the Workplace
  • Supports for same-sex attracted employees
  • Employees in same-sex attracted relationships
