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.
California sexual harassment claims number in the thousands, with annual settlements in the millions of dollars. And a formal written policy is not enough to keep you out of hot water. Training managers on sexual harassment prevention is mandatory in California and must be repeated every two years to stay compliant.
