Responding to a Sexual Harassment Complaint


Your failure to respond properly to a complaint or incident may lead to individual liability and/or subject the company to liability.

Even if your policy requires that an employee report harassment to a direct supervisor, or bypass a direct supervisor and goes straight to HR, once an issue is raised an investigation must occur. The investigation must be prompt, thorough, impartial and well documented. Once investigation concludes there should be prompt remedial action to stop inappropriate conduct and the supervisor needs to circle back to complainant. This video reviews how an employer might be put on notice of harassment, initial considerations once a report has been made; and common mistakes that take place when addressing harassment reports.
