Preventing Sexual Harassment For Managers And Supervisors
Most managers and supervisors have heard about fines and lawsuits brought against companies that ignore "sexual harassment." And while they are the first lines of defense in preventing sexual harassment incidents, many managers and supervisors don't know what constitutes harassment, or what they should do if it occurs. Complicating things is that recognizing sexual harassment can be difficult. Conduct that might appear harmless to one person could be harassment to others.
The second of a three-part series on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, this program looks at behaviors and actions that can constitute sexual harassment, discusses why managers and supervisors must pay particular attention to what they say and do, and examines how to recognize sexual harassment in the workplace. Areas covered in the program include:
- What constitutes sexual harassment
- Managers' and supervisors' responsibilities
- Preventing sexual harassment
- Recognizing sexual harassment
- What to do if sexual harassment occurs
