According to recent statistics, more than half of all workers (54%) have experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace, making it the most common type of workplace harassment. It is the employer’s responsibility to try to actively prevent and eliminate sexual harassment in their business. Not only does sexual harassment affect your employees, it affects the future of your business.
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when such conduct:
Preventing and eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace means that all employees must be properly educated and trained on how to react to sexual harassment if it happens. Managers and supervisors should receive specialized training to properly handle cases of sexual harassment. The business must have strict procedures and processes for when sexual harassment does occur, such as handling complaints, investigations, and corrective measures.
