Does your organization have specific training, protocol, and procedures in place to inform, prevent, and document the sensitive issue of workplace sexual harassment?
Wherever people work together and share common interests, relationships become intimate and can lead to inappropriate behavior. In June of 1998, the Supreme Court made employers more liable for the sexual harassment of their employees — which could result in costly fines and legal action.
Uncomfortable personal situations between coworkers can create workplace difficulties and legal issues for many organizations and their HR departments. When sexual harassment takes place — whether it's purposeful or off the cuff — it's imperative that your organization is prepared to deal with consequences and this workshop will help.
