Sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature.
Experiencing sexual harassment can be one of the most difficult situations a worker can face, however, it should not be happening and all workers are protected by law from sexual harassment.
Handling accusations of sexual harassment can be difficult, and if not done correctly can lead to the company being held liable along with the perpetrator of the harassment.
Our course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. You’ll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent.
We also address how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations.
The course also covers investigation from the employer’s perspective, and the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.
What is sexual harassment, Examples and research, Dealing with a complaint, Sexual Harassment in the Workplace The law and sexual harassment, Case studies.
