Harassment is not a sexy subject and ethics is more than words. “The times they are a changing” and that’s more than just song lyrics – it’s reality in our 21st Century workplace. What was once tolerated (although illegal) is now front and center and creating more workplace disruption then could have ever been imagined just a few years past. Unethical activity including sexual harassment is front and center in workplace training and needed because of the negative impact that harassment has on both the employer and employee in today’s workplace.
This program will raise awareness regarding harassment and explain the do’s and don’ts of creating a respectful workplace for everyone. Get an inside look at the ethics of harassment issues and how destructive they can be.
In addition to the time and expense of a potential complaint, harassment can impact the workplace in a negative manner by causing lower employee morale, increased absenteeism, lower productivity, and decreased commitment to the employer, and decreased motivation. Sexual harassment prevention training may also provide an affirmative defense for employers if a complaint is filed against them.
