Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Are You Prepared To Be the Next Social Media Blitz?

CEU Approved

  • 90 minutes

Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Al Franken, Garrison Keillor, members of Congress, and various State law makers have been accused of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault. But there is a difference between pulling one’s pants down in front of a female colleague at work and touching a woman on her buttocks during a photo op—isn’t there? What is that difference? Are both examples considered sexual harassment? What exactly is sexual harassment? Sexual assault? Questions and confusion abound with the current seismic national—and international—tsunami of women coming forward to disclose their victimization. The #MeToo movement is providing a platform for women’s voices to be shared as they tell their stories.

But it is not only famous powerful men, such as celebrities and law makers, who sexually harass women (and sometimes men), powerful men (and occasionally women) in every industry may find they either have in the past, or are currently guilty of aggressive propositioning, touching, or telling off-color jokes. Sexual harassment exists at every level from universities, to workplaces, to healthcare and even in law firms. Antics or bad behavior such as this are unacceptable in the workplace and against company policy, but do these behaviors rise to the very high standard of illegal sexual harassment?

Join this session by expert speaker Susan Strauss, where she will discuss the effective elements in your organization’s prevention strategy and also review complaint procedures that must be incorporated into your harassment policy.

Session Highlights:

  • Differentiate between flirting and sexual harassment; illegal harassment versus psychological harassment; and bullying versus sexual harassment.

  • List the critical elements of sexual harassment training

  • Identify the effects of sexual harassment on the target, the work unit, and the organization

  •  Discuss retaliation

  • Identify the steps to take if you are targeted by a sexual harasser

  • Explain management’s legal and ethical responsibility in the prevention and intervention of sexual harassment

  • Explain what a supervisor “really” is

  • Discuss whether sexual harassment can exist Outside of work

  • Examine Men’s concerns regarding sexual harassment at work

  • Discuss the steps to take if an employee complains about an “old” incident of sexual harassment

Why You Should Attend:

The U. S. Supreme Court has stated that organizations must prevent sexual harassment from occurring in their workplaces. This webinar will outline prevention strategies. The prevention strategies will minimize your liability. Workplaces should be based on equality, respect and dignity. What is your workplace’s values regarding these three elements of equality, respect, and dignity? Supervisors are often the first line of defense in confronting sexual harassment; the webinar will outline who is a supervisor, which will surprise many attendees. It is critical for every workplace to recognize what good sexual harassment entails – it is not a 20-30 on-line course, so what is it then? Are there actual times when an employer is responsible for sexual harassment that occurs outside the workplace—the webinar will discuss those possibilities. This webinar will provide men (and women) guidelines on how to determine if their workplace behavior is appropriate.

  • Human resources professionals
