An important client makes a lewd comment in a meeting with your team. Everyone laughs uncomfortably and says nothing .... Later, a woman on your team comes to your office upset by the remarks. As the manager, what should you have done?
Sexual harassment creeps into our workplaces. At the very least, it makes workers uncomfortable and takes the focus off your business. Then consider that three out of four employees who are harassed at work don’t even speak up out of fear of retaliation.
Roughly 7,000 sexual harassment charges are filed each year with the EEOC, resulting in millions of dollars in penalties. The cost gets even higher if you’re sued and you’ve done little to control it. And if you think having a formal written policy can keep you out of hot water, think again.
Training managers on prevention is a vital step in creating a harassment-free workplace. It can also limit your liability if you’re sued. Register now for Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Managers and Supervisors, a two-hour Webinar that will help guide behavior, detect warning signs and know how to respond to a complaint. From recognizing behavior that crosses the line to knowing an employer’s responsibilities, you can train your entire management team in one convenient online event—and only pay for one Webinar connection.
