Course overview

Sexual harassment certainly isn’t an easy subject to bring up, but it’s a serious issue that shouldn’t be avoided. Workplaces of all kinds need to adopt a zero-tolerance policy from the start, and ensure that the details of which are communicated clearly to all staff. Harassment can happen to anyone and involves any unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that affects working conditions or creates a hostile working environment. 

Employers are responsible for ensuring that employees never have to face harassment in their workplace. They have a legal obligation to take reasonable steps to protect their employees and keep them safe. And if they fail to do so, they’re legally liable.

Ultimately, this course has been created as an overview and to support learners in understanding the core objectives around this topic.
