Learn how to prevent sexual abuse, harassment and exploitation in your business and workplace through the development of appropriate policies, training, and awareness of risk indicators.
Your employees will be happier and more comfortable in the work environment and your firm will avoid unnecessary adverse publicity, as well as claims and damages.
The rise of the #MeToo movement generated greater public awareness of the issues of sexual abuse, harassment, and exploitation. Businesses are at risk of legal claims and reputational harm if such practices are allowed to occur. Make sure your business is prepared to prevent that risk of sexual harassment in the workplace.
