Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (Approved by CPD)
Sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. Experiencing sexual harassment can be
one of the most difficult situations a worker can face, however it should not be happening and all
workers are protected by law from sexual harassment.
Handling accusations of sexual harassment can be difficult, and if not done correctly can lead to the
company being held liable along with the perpetrator of the harassment.
This course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both
employment law and criminal law. You’ll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious
the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent.
It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and
robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these
situations. The course also coves investigation from the employer’s perspective, the role of
employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what
constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to
deal with this behaviour.
