Everything you always wanted to know about sexual harassment (but were too afraid to ask)

When there is an allegation of sexual harassment, the circumstances are rarely cut and dry and often require HR professionals to deal with grey areas of the law outside of their comfort zone. To make matters more challenging, in cases where allegations are substantiated the consequences can be damaging, if not devastating.

In this webinar, we looked at a few “outside the square” issues in sexual harassment such as:

  • Appearance, dress and personality – factors that “lead” to sexual harassment?
  • How much can you pry about people’s personal relationships outside of work?
  • Sexual assault in the workplace – is it your duty to report to the police?
