Recent harassment lawsuits show that employers and managers can increase their legal liability if they neglect a harassment complaint and fail to create and/or enforce anti-harassment policies.
Managers must step up and take harassment seriously, but complicating the situation is the difficulty in figuring out what harassment actually is. Most of it is subtle and has taken recent forms which do not easily fit traditional understandings of the idea.
To help address this issue, Harassment for Managers: A New Look examines the recent forms of harassment and shows how supervisors can and should prevent, identify and respond effectively to such phenomena. A vital training update and a reliable compliance guide, the program uses vivid re-enactments to discuss:
Quid pro quo, tangible employment action, and hostile environment
Bullying and digital harassment
Humor, third-party harassment and age-discrimination
Recognizing the impact of harassment and identifying warning signs
Managers' responsibilities and obligations
The need to train and communicate policies
Handling complaints seriously and effectively
Conducting investigations fairly
Interviewing protocols and enforcement.
