Employers Need to Focus on Sexual Harassment Prevention

The end of 2017 has brought sexual harassment into focus for the first time in many years thanks in part to the confluence of several events – including the ousting of many high profile individuals who participated or orchestrated harassment; and the #metoo movement, which evidenced the prevalence of the problem.  Moving into 2018 employers need to prioritize updating (or creating!) their policies related to sexual harassment.  Your policy should include a clear definition for employees and management what is considered “harassment,” the procedure for reporting harassment, and how to proceed when the complaint is against a supervisor or company executive.  Additionally, sexual harassment should be included in your employee trainings both in the short term and on a reoccurring basis.
