Potential class action

Response to Class Action Investigation into sexual discrimination and harassment in Australia.

Last updated: 29 May 2024


We are aware a legal firm is investigating a potential class action.

We take all concerns about workplace safety and culture including sexual discrimination and harassment very seriously.

In 2022 we released an external review of our workplace culture as part of our commitment to drive meaningful change to create a safe, respectful and inclusive workforce.

The Everyday Respect report included recommendations to ensure the cultural change we’re making at Rio Tinto is implemented, embedded and its effectiveness monitored. This includes an independent review of our progress.

Former Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick is currently leading this independent review, and it is our intention to publish the report by the end of the year.
