Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Course
Sexual Harassment is behaviour characterised by the making of unwelcome and inappropriate sexual remarks or physical advances in a workplace, professional or social situation.
This course will begin by providing an in-depth definition of sexual harassment and describing how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. It will be made clear using workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent. It also tackles how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations.
