Managing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

As an employer or business manager, you are duty-bound to make it clear to your employees that sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable.

If a claim of sexual harassment is made against one of your employees, you could be held vicariously liable under the Sex Discrimination Act or health and safety legislation.

So, for the sake of your employees’ safety AND the reputation of your business, it’s crucial that you take all reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment from occurring in your workplace.
