Sexual harassment can be devastating for its victims as well as for the companies they work for. It’s also illegal. But the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission still receives more than 10,000 sexual harassment complaints from U.S. workers every year.
The first in a three-part series on sexual harassment in the workplace, Atlantic Training’s "Preventing Sexual Harassment… for Employees" training program provides employees with the information they need to help prevent sexual harassment in their workplace and deal with it effectively if it does occur.
Topics covered include:
Employees must understand to any policies and procedures supported with ongoing communication and training. Training because they may not understand the issues and policies, for example someone might think of sexual harassment as a physical act but it can be verbal or non-verbal as well and it can happen to anyone. Sexual harassment can also occur between individuals of the same sex. If someone files a sexual harassment complaint you need to take that complain seriously and follow up with a complete unbiased investigation immediately.
