Provide prevention training
  • Employers should provide training for all new employees and periodically for all employees on the company’s zero tolerance policies for sexual harassment.

A good anti-sexual harassment training program can go a long way in preventing sexual harassment and proving that a company took adequate measures to prevent sexual harassment.

Whether a video is used, a pamphlet is distributed, or a classroom session is held, training is important. Effective training may mean the difference between sexual harassment occurring or not. If a case goes to court, the difference may be measured as a large amount of dollars. The effect of sexual harassment on victimized employees can be lifelong.

Courts sometimes require evidence of not only employee handbooks and written policies, but proof that employers have conducted face-to-face training on the employer’s rules to avoid punitive damage claims. Training should be done for all new employees and periodically for all employees.
