Become Familiar with Workplace Sexual Harassment Training: Here’s What You Need to Know

To reduce their liability to harassment claims, companies must provide effective anti-harassment workplace training for employees and managers, encourage staff to report any incidents they experience or observe, thoroughly investigate all complaints brought forward, and implement corrective action whenever necessary. This is a directive given by the US Supreme Court.

A recent survey from Stop Street Harassment reveals that 81% of women and 43% of men have been victims to workplace harassment. To guarantee secure job settings, effort must be taken to prevent all forms of discrimination, violence and sexual advances in the work place – whether verbal or physical. Employers are morally obligated and legally responsible for providing a safe workspace, as this is connected with employment law compliance. It’s essential we take action now to ensure every employee feels safe at their job site.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace is something that no company should take lightly. Not only can such lawsuits cause a significant financial burden, but they also have detrimental effects on morale and one’s reputation. Fortunately, digital workplace compliance training programs provide an effective solution to prevent such unfortunate outcomes while simultaneously fostering a healthy work atmosphere that does not tolerate any forms of gender or racial discrimination.

The EEOC’s Suggestions for Workplace Harassment Training

The EEOC, the federal organization in the United States responsible for enforcing anti-discrimination laws in relation to employment, was established to protect job applicants and employees. Aside from litigating discrimination cases, a large portion of their job consists of lobbying to prevent Harassment through research, community involvement, and the creation of informational resources for the public.

The agency consistently stressed the importance of having and consistently enforcing anti-harassment policies in companies. According to a study conducted by the EEOC Selected Task Force on the Research of Harassment in the Workplace, there are several proposals for managing Harassment, such as providing harassment awareness training.

Harassment Compliance Training

The EEOC was mindful of reports from employers and trainers, despite the need for additional scientific evidence about the best way to implement training to prevent Harassment. This practical information revealed that compliance training is a critical component of any effort to prevent Harassment. However, more than simply giving training with follow-up is required. For greater effectiveness, it should be used as part of a larger strategy for resolving the issue rather than being deployed as an isolated solution.
