Sexual harassment allegations, assaults, scarred-for-life victims, devastated families, ruptured reputations, disruption of team member’s productivity, and big pay outs continue to be front page news.
Don’t let this happen at your company. The United States has a well-articulated standard of employer liability for sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.
The most effective weapon against sexual harassment is prevention. Harassment does not disappear on its own. In fact, it is more likely when the issue is not addressed, the harassment will worsen and become more difficult to remedy as time goes on.
Education is the key to reducing risk and creating a respectful workplace for all.
