Private employers should have sexual harassment prevention training to prevent a "#MeToo" moment

Unfortunately, claims of sexual harassment are happening everywhere in today's society. Hollywood, Washington, DC and New York are prime examples. Illinois employers, don't be naïve - it happens in Illinois too!

What can an employer do to reduce the risk of sexual harassment claims? The key is sexual harassment prevention training. Simply having a written sexual harassment policy is not enough to protect an employer.

Sexual harassment prevention training should be provided to new employees as well as current employees on a regular basis. This training can be online or in person. The training should consist of an explanation and several examples of what sexual harassment is, the company's policy and complaint process and examples of inappropriate conduct with the opportunity for a question and answer session.

Also crucial is frequent supervisory training where supervisors are told to report all complaints of sexual harassment, no matter how seemingly minor.

Wessels Sherman is available to provide cost effective sexual harassment prevention training at your company facility. Please contact us for more details.
