Now more than ever, it’s critical that employers are providing clear messages regarding what’s appropriate, and what’s not, when it comes to sexual harassment.
The personal toll is high for individuals who suffer harassment, as is the liability for the company they work for.
In 2015 alone, the EEOC recovered $165 million from harassment charges against employers and harassment negatively impacts a company’s reputation, overall retention rate, and employee productivity.
California and New York now require sexual harassment training for all employees.
