Preventing Sexual Harassment at Work: An Introductory Workshop for Managers & HR

Know your legal responsibilities as an Employer!

Recently sexual harassment has received extensive media coverage, with public figures speaking up about being sexually harassed by Hollywood directors, actors and politicians. This has resulted in ordinary members of the public having the courage to talk about their own experiences of sexual harassment and sex discrimination using the hashtag #MeToo on social media.

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many forms – it can range from what some perceive as ‘office banter’ to full-on sexual advances. With the Christmas party season fast approaching, now is more important than ever to ensure you have an up to date toolkit to help you prevent and address sexual harassment in the workplace.
