Allegations of sexual harassment have been forefront in recent headlines. In many cases, victims reported fear of retaliation and loss of employment (or careers) if they reported the incidents. What are the best practices for dealing with this sensitive issue?
The most effective way to create a harassment-free workplace is to empower all employees by providing the tools needed to identify warning signs, and to follow proper prevention protocols. This webinar is designed to help managers, supervisors, and HR professionals understand the complex behavior surrounding sexual harassment and how to address it. When sexual harassment occurs, it’s important that your management team is prepared to appropriately respond and avoid any claims of retaliation. Sexual harassment issues can be very disruptive, involve litigation, and may impact employee morale, corporate liability, and your institution’s public reputation.
