Sexual harassment can have an incalculable cost for victims, their families, friends and coworkers. Any form of sexual conduct in the workplace is inappropriate, and may constitute sexual harassment if the actions or comments are unwanted or threatening. But recognizing sexual harassment is only half the battle. If action isn't taken quickly, and the situation is not resolved fairly, a company can face lawsuits and hefty fines. In fact, the company's reputation, business relationships and financial security could depend on how a manager or supervisor handles a sexual harassment incident. The third of a three-part series on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, MARCOM's Safety Meeting Kit "Handling a Sexual Harassment Investigation" looks at a company's legal responsibility to prevent and deal with sexual harassment incidents, examines policies and procedures that should be followed when investigating allegations of sexual harassment, and discusses how to interview apparent victims, alleged harassers and potential witnesses. The poster in the kit reminds employees to be sensitive to actions that could be interpreted as sexual harassment. The videotape/DVD and employee booklets include information on:
- A company's legal responsibility regarding sexual harassment.
- Conducting an ethical investigation.
- Beginning the investigation process.
- Documenting harassment allegations.
- Interviewing alleged harassers and witnesses.
- ...and more!
The program contains one videotape/DVD, 1 booklet and 1 poster. The videotape/DVD comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
