Tenpin Bowling Australia (TBA) is thrilled to announce the inclusion of Positive Duty as the newest member of the TBA Business Club.

This partnership signifies an important step forward in promoting a safer, more respectful workplace across the tenpin bowling community and beyond.

Positive Duty is a team of dedicated consultants specialising in helping Australian employers adapt to and implement the requirements of the new government legislation aimed at combating workplace sexual harassment. With the introduction of the Anti-Discrimination and Human Rights Legislation (Respect at Work) Act, there’s a heightened focus on ensuring all employers, regardless of their business size, actively work to prevent sexual harassment and related behaviours in the workplace.

The recent changes in Australian law have introduced a ‘positive duty’ on employers, requiring them to take proactive steps to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. This is more than just responding to complaints; it involves the implementation of active policies designed to prevent such behaviours from occurring in the first place. Failure to comply can result in significant financial fines, reputational damage, and a detrimental impact on the business value and attractiveness to potential employees.

Positive Duty brings extensive experience to the table, offering services designed to save businesses time and money while minimising the risk of financial and reputational harm. Their approach includes conducting a positive duty health check, ensuring compliance with the seven standard guidelines, and putting preventative measures in place to reduce risk.

“We are excited to be part of the TBA Business Club and to extend our expertise to the Tenpin Bowling community,” said Richard Hurlin, Positive Duty Director. “Our goal is to support TBA Registered centres in fostering a safe and respectful work environment, free from sexual harassment and discrimination.”

This partnership is more than just a collaboration; it’s a commitment to upholding the highest standards of workplace safety and integrity within the Tenpin Bowling industry. By joining forces with Positive Duty, TBA demonstrates its dedication to the well-being of its members and their employees.
