Stages of Preventing Sexual Harassment

Sep 30

While state and federal laws work to protect employees from sexual harassment, the reality is that it occurs in workplaces across the country every day. But knowing the signs that sexual harassment is occurring is critical in becoming an ally in the workplace for those victims of harassment. The employment attorneys of Brown Kwon & Lam explain.

Stages of Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Former New York City attorney Ally Coll, the founder of the nonprofit The Purple Campaign, which aims to create safe workplaces and alter the way workplace culture becomes a breeding ground for harassment, explains that sexual harassment thinking needs to come in three stages: prevent, respond, and rethink.

While keeping these things in the forefront of your office restructuring to combat sexual harassment in the workplace, you may wonder what you can do as an employee who has experienced harassment.

Reporting Workplace Sexual Harassment

While helping create safe workplaces is one aspect of employment law, the other is to protect and defend the rights of victims. If you have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, know that you must come forward as these behaviors likely will not stop. Speak up, talk to management, have a meeting with HR. If none of these encounters change the behavior, then you need legal guidance.
