"Exploring Workplace Violence in the Form of Sexual Harassment"
Jocelyn Valentin-Miller - 2 CE Credits
Sexual Harassment in the workplace is workplace violence. It is a serious and widespread problem which often leaves employees and employers grappling with the ramifications of an unsafe hostile work environment. The appropriate response to sexual harassment is in the prevention of harassment. It requires shifting workplace norms as well as the conscious changing of behaviors to create a culture of safety, equity and respect. Training supports employees and supervisors in identifying sexual harassment in all its various form, with a focus on protected classes, to include LGBTQ+ persons. We will explore common mistakes employers make in investigating sexual harassment, the legal ramifications of allowing a hostile workplace environment to persist, and emphasize the importance of personal ethics in establishing organizational culture. Participants will learn to identify the source of harassment, the target of harassment and the role of the bystander. Additionally, participants will be educated on the significant role of the bystander in the deterrence of workplace violence. This form of intervention is considered a key component to eliminating a culture of unlawful and/or criminal harassing behavior and contributes to the promotion of a healthy respectful workplace
