Sexual Harassment


In Fiscal Year 2006, EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) received 12,025 charges of sexual harassment. 15.4% of those charges were filed by males. EEOC resolved 11,936 sexual harassment charges in FY 2006 and recovered $48.8 million in monetary benefits for charging parties and other aggrieved individuals (not including monetary benefits obtained through litigation).

Ensure that your employees understand appropriate conduct regarding sexual harassment as well as environmental and economic harassment. By providing Sexual Harassment Prevention Training to your staff, you will help to avoid expensive harassment-related lawsuits.
According to the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunty Commission), “Prevention is the best tool to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. They should clearly communicate to employees that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. They can do so by providing sexual harassment training to their employees and by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains.”

In this two hour training program, employees will learn how to defuse uncomfortable workplace situations that might otherwise result in claims of sexual or unlawful harassment.

“All our employees have signed off on our sexual harassment policy. We’re covered—right?” Maybe not!
“We conducted sexual harassment training three years ago. We’re covered—right?” Maybe not!
Employees can “Know” the law, but if their behaviors don’t reflect that knowledge
