Preventing Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment continues to remain a real workplace problem. Media stories and studies clarify the high toll that this misconduct takes on targeted employees, coworkers, and the overall work environment. A workplace that allows, and even encourages such conduct cannot expect employees to do their best work. The United States Congress, state legislatures, and local lawmakers have enacted laws that require most employers to train all employees on sexual harassment prevention and response. Employees need to understand their role in promoting a healthy workplace, preventing sexual harassment, and effectively responding to such misconduct when it occurs. This course does not fulfill the specific requirements of any one state and should not be used as a substitute for state-specific training in a jurisdiction that has a legislative training requirement.
