Handling A Sexual Harassment Investigation

Sexual conduct in the workplace is always inappropriate, but when the conduct is not welcomed or threatening, it constitutes unlawful sexual harassment. The victim of sexual harassment can suffer mentally, physically, and psychologically, and their coworkers may be affected as well. The entire work environment may be poisoned, leading to decreased productivity and increased turnover. To protect its employees, a company must be able to recognize, investigate, and remediate claims of sexual harassment. Through Handling A Sexual Harassment Investigation, leaders learn about what constitutes sexual harassment, the policies your company can implement to address it, as well as how you should investigate claims should they arise.

Certain actions always constitute sexual harassment, including sexual assault or conditioning job benefits on sexual favors or advances. Sexual harassment may also arise from comments, e-mails, jokes, or other similar examples. When a company receives a claim of sexual harassment, it has an obligation to thoroughly investigate it. It is imperative to gather all the pertinent facts and act in a timely manner to resolve the situation appropriately. Such a resolution may include immediate termination depending on the severity of the conduct.

All companies need to have an anti-harassment policy, but merely having a policy will not prevent sexual harassment. This is why it is important for a company to know how to respond once it receives a harassment complaint. Utilize the information presented in this on-demand training and learn how to recognize, investigate, and resolve claims of sexual harassment.
