For Management, Supervisors and Employees
As an employer, you have the responsibility to maintain a workplace free of sexual harassment. This is your legal obligation, but also makes good business sense. If you allow harassment to flourish in your workplace, you will pay a high price in terms of poor employee morale, low productivity, and lawsuits. Sexual harassment in the workplace can affect anyone in any job. While not limited to women, the statistics show that only 15% of charges are filed by males. Sexual harassment destroys the work environment. The anxiety and frustration experienced by victims can impact their quality of life and the quality of their work.
The average cost to defend an employment claim is approximately $300.000, and the average jury verdict for sexual harassment claims is 1 million. The plus to having the training in place is that it can be used as a defense against such enormous cases.
Highly interactive, involving small group discussions of no more than 25-50 participants and using MS PowerPoint, and the use of video (optional), this Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace workshop reviews the origin of sexual harassment, the implications, the legal remedies and the proper way of investigating sexual harassment in the workplace.
