Harassment Update…

This past fall, harassment, particularly sexual harassment, has taken on a new significance. Starting with the Harvey Weinstein allegations, harassment complaints have skyrocketed and not just in Hollywood and the news industry. Private employers too must pay attention to the potential of increased harassment in their workplaces.

It is a good time to review existing policies, ensure there are several different ways for employees to voice complaints and re-visit training for all employees, not just supervisors. If someone does complain, be sure to take it seriously and investigate immediately.
