Realization of the importance of awareness and education in a matter of sexual workplace harassment will not be achieved by only sharing theory about the harassment. We as speakers have to do more than merely drawing up lists about the standard subjects involved. Sure, we also need to mention all these definitions that clarify more about (sexual) workplace harassment, but when we are speaking about something like this it’s our obligation to make full use of that moment. The personal experience of the (sexual) harassment is merged in our workshops in a transparent and accessible way. This makes it possible for everyone to experience how it feels to be groped and preyed up on by a superior or co-worker. That real-life experience, which runs like a common thread through our presentation, distinguishes us from other more theoretical presentations.
There are two main actions that employers must take to avoid liability for sexual harassment.
− Take all reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. In order to prevent sexual harassment an employer should have a sexual harassment policy, implement it as fully as possible and monitor its effectiveness.
− If sexual harassment does occur, take appropriate remedial action. In order to remedy sexual harassment an employer should have appropriate procedures for swiftly dealing with complaints once they are made.
