Duration:

Sexual harassment is defined as unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. Experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace can be one of the most difficult situations a worker can face. Sexual harassment should not be happening under any circumstances and every worker is by law protected from sexual harassment.

Handling accusations of sexual harassment can be difficult, and if they are not dealt with in the correct manner both the company and the perpetrator of the harassment can be held liable.

This important course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. You will see that from workplace statistics how common, widespread and serious the problem is. You will also see how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent, which is unacceptable. It also addresses how allegations should be correctly handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies surrounding harassment in the workplace and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations. The Sexual Harassment in the Workplace course also covers how the investigation should be approached from the employer's perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and finally finishes with case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.
