Overview

Recent cases in the news have highlighted the importance of implementing prompt, fair and effective procedures when sexual harassment complaints arise.

How people function in the workplace has much to do with how they relate to one another and the relationships they develop. What is deemed as an appropriate or inappropriate relationship is often hard for people to decipher, and even more difficult to determine when someone crosses the line.

To be productive in the workplace and to be an efficient manager, it's critical for you to be aware of when you or someone else has crossed the line and established an inappropriate relationship.

What You Will Learn

This informative Webcast examines:
  • What you should do when someone on your team "crosses the line"
  • How sexual harassment cases can impact company morale
  • Which offensive behaviors can be considered harassment
  • Whose responsibility it is to report what he or she observes
  • Nine key steps to take when sexual harassment happens
  • What constitutes reasonable care and how can that impact your situation
  • Good and bad management techniques for receiving a complaint

Most people think this is something HR handles, but the truth is most cases start with an employee reporting a situation to the manager. If you don't know your policy and the law, you as the manager or agent of your organization can make a bad situation much worse.

Join us as we explore this important issue and offer guidelines to help you better manage through these difficult situations.
