Sexual harassment, unfortunately, has not been eradicated from the modern workplace. While state and federal laws in New York protect employees from harassment, individual companies, and their supervisors and managers, must do everything in their power to prevent employees from becoming victims of harassment. The role of managers and supervisors is of particular importance to this endeavor, as their actions directly impact both a company’s culture as well as its legal liability. After all, an employer is strictly liable for sexual harassment committed by these individuals, or for harassment they failed to report. This course explores the role of management in preventing harassment, the specific laws protecting employees, as well as how to prevent sexual harassment in your company.

Harassment can come in two forms: Quid Pro Quo and hostile environment. Quid Pro Quo sexual harassment is when a manager or supervisor withholds or awards job benefits on the basis of sexual favors, even when there is no explicit threat of an adverse employment action. Hostile environment harassment consists of severe and pervasive sexual verbal comments, behavior, or advances that the employee finds objectionable. While a single, isolated event may not be enough for a finding of a hostile work environment, particularly severe actions may be. You will learn more about these forms of harassment here.

Culture is key to the prevention of sexual harassment, but culture starts at the top. Creating the proper culture begins with training and policies, and it also includes promptly, thoroughly, and impartially investigating reports of sexual harassment. Any retaliation against reporters of sexual harassment would both destroy this culture, as well as subject the employer to additional legal liability. Utilize the information presented in this online training lesson and help prevent sexual harassment in your workplace.
