Sexual harassment in the workplace has been a hot topic for the last few weeks. While not a new focus area, the recent claims in Hollywood have shed new light on the different forms harassment by coworkers, employers, and associates can take. The sensitivity surrounding these complaints can be a challenge for HR departments, but companies must be diligent in their approach to handling sexual harassment properly to minimize legal ramifications.
Sexual harassment guidelines exist and are clearly defined by the DOL to protect all personnel from uncomfortable and unsafe situations in the workplace. It is a company’s legal responsibility to ensure that these policies are enforced and all complaints are investigated to the fullest extent.
