Handling Sexual Harassment Claims

The flurry of news stories on sexual harassment allegations and the social media "#metoo" campaign are causing employers to take action to protect themselves and promote a healthy environment.

Quinlivan & Hughes outlined the key roles organizations should play this week at the monthly Breakfast Seminar and provided these key resources.

Key steps for employers to take:

  • Review and update anti-harassment policy and reporting procedures.
  • Make sure anti-harassment policy and reporting procedures are accessible to employees.
  • Promote a culture, through leadership, that encourages the reporting of inappropriate behavior.
  • Train employees (and especially supervisors) on sexual harassment and civility in the workplace.
  • Checklists
    To assist employers, the EEOC published in 2016 a series of checklists on these key topics:

  • Leadership and Accountability
  • An Anti-Harassment Policy
  • A Harassment Reporting System and Investigations
  • Compliance Training
  • Taking Action
    The Quinlivan & Hughes Employment Group can help you take action. We have a variety of resources and can provide workplace training and assistance with policy updates and allegation investigations.
