How can an employer prevent sexual harassment?
  • Employers can create and share policies and training programs that help prevent sexual harassment.

Prevention is the most effective and cost-efficient method of dealing with sexual harassment. Every company needs to have a sound preventive program to let all employees know what constitutes sexual harassment, that it is illegal, and that this behavior will not be tolerated.

Help prevent sexual harassment

Companies should create and distribute a clear sexual harassment policy that promotes zero tolerance of sexually harassing conduct. A training program can also be developed and shared to help prevent sexual harassment from occurring in the workplace.

Create a respectful work environment

Other aspects of a training program can include:

  • Civility training, which promotes a respectful work environment overall, and
  • Bystander training, a violence prevention strategy.
