Sexual Harassment Prevention
4.7 out of 5.0, Based on: 186 reviews
Sexual harassment is a form of workplace discrimination that is unlawful under federal law, and in some instances, state and local law. Sexual harassment may be based on sex, sexual orientation, self-identified or perceived sex, gender expression, gender identity and the status of being transgender. Sexual harassment is a global problem that pervades all industries and occupations, including the medical community. Sexual harassment in the workplace is mostly driven by a culture or climate within an organization that encourages or fails to discourage harassment. There cannot be progress in reducing sexual harassment unless management and employees work together to change the culture and climate within the workplace and the employer-organization. Additionally, an organization may create an “ethical culture” within the company that sets a higher standard against harassment than is required by law. An employer should have a policy that prohibits sexual harassment. These policies should be directed at removing barriers to reporting and resolving sexual harassment incidents. Sexual harassment training may be mandatory in some states, and if it is not, it is strongly recommended. It should be directed at changing the workplace culture and climate that tends to promote harassment. Finally, an employer should have an effective complaint or grievance process and should take timely action to end the harassment.
