This CPD approved Sexual Harassment Awareness in the Workplace Course provides you with essential knowledge that will help to identify and prevent sexual harassment. It also explores how allegations should be handled, including the role of the line manager and some case studies.
Sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. Experiencing sexual harassment can be one of the most difficult situations a worker can face, however it should not be happening and all workers are protected by law from sexual harassment.
Handling accusations of sexual harassment can be difficult, and if not done correctly can lead to the company being held liable along with the perpetrator of the harassment.
This Sexual Harassment in the Workplace course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law.
You'll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent.
It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations.
The course also coves investigation from the employer's perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some 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.
