Building Effective Sexual Harassment Prevention Policies and Training

Building Effective Sexual Harassment Prevention Policies and Training

There’s no place for sexual harassment in today’s workplace, and employers have a responsibility to investigate every allegation. But reacting after a complaint is made doesn’t fix a culture that allows sexual harassment to occur. A proactive approach, incorporating a strong policy, backed by training and commitment at all levels, is key to building an organizational culture that discourages sexual harassment.

Join Philip Miles, employment lawyer, McQuaide Blasko, as he outlines the steps for building policies and training plans to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • The key elements of a sexual harassment policy
  • The importance of defining prohibited behavior
  • Creating reporting paths to encourage whistleblowers to come forward
  • The importance of anti-retaliation provisions
  • How policies and training reduce the risk of liability (both practically and legally)
  • How to structure anti-harassment training for best results
