Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
As an employer, you have an ethical and a legal obligation to maintain a working environment that’s free from discrimination and sexual harassment. Recent high profile incidents of sexual harassment have increased public awareness of workplace issues and the #metoo response from women across the US provides an indication of the pervasive nature of sexual harassment and sexual discrimination problems.
Is sexual harassment occuring within your organization?
If so, you’re at risk. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, employees can file claims with the EEOC and seek remedies that range from lost wages to punitive damages. Beyond the cost of legal claims, sexual harassment incidents can negatively affect morale and the working environment, reduce productivity, and damage your company’s brand and reputation.
