Sexual Harassment Training for Supervisors
Gain a better understanding of defining and identifying sexual harassment in the workplace and learn how to investigate complaints as a manager.
The #metoo movement spurred an increase in harassment reporting, and younger employees entering the workplace are more likely to report harassment than prior generations. Employees are coming forward with complaints, but employers are tasked with determining which complaints constitute sexual harassment and what they should do when they receive a complaint. Sexual harassment can come in all forms and from many different parties, making it essential for employers to understand how they can best educate their employees, especially their supervisors and managers, on the topic. Employees should know what constitutes sexual harassment and how to report sexual harassment, while supervisors and managers must be given the training and tools to identify sexual harassment in the workplace.
