Prevention of Sexual Harassment Policy
What is the Prevention of Sexual Harassment Policy?
With increasing gender equality in society and the increased opportunities for women in every field of work, it has become unavoidable to take preventive measures against sexual harassment. The weight of preventing sexual harassment lies on the employer. Therefore, employers are required by law to take steps to forbid and deal with molestation in the workplace. Suppose the employer has not taken all good steps to prevent and deal with harassment in the workplace. In that case, the employer may be responsible for any harassment, even if he was unaware that such harassment was taking place. The Prevention of Sexual harassment Policy includes all the provisions about steps to be taken when such an incident happens. The policy explains what harassment is, expresses all employees that harassment will not be tolerated, and sets out how employers and employees should react to harassment incidents. Having an anti-harassment policy doesn’t mean that there will not be harassment complaints or incidents. However, having an adequate policy and procedure, linked with anti-harassment training for all staff, will prevent harassment and encourage individuals who are the victims to come forward and guarantee that the problem is addressed rapidly and effectively.
