http://blog.hr360.com/hr-blog/sexual-harassment-in-the-workplace Video Highlights: 1:28: The first step in preventing harassment is establishing a zero tolerance policy. Clearly state that NO form of harassment will be accepted at your workplace, including not only sexual harassment, but also harassment due to race, religion, ethnic background, age or disability. Publish the policy in your handbook and post it prominently on your company intranet or internal website. 1:52: Next, offer employees training in how to recognize harassment. Make sure they understand what types of actions and behaviors constitute sexual harassment and what things do not constitute sexual harassment. 3:36: Make this process as simple as possible for your employees by providing accessible points of contacts for employees to bring complaints. Your policy should also assure employees that they will not suffer retaliation as a result of any complaint made in good faith. Retaliation is against the law.
What is Sexual Harassment? Sexual Harassment explained. http://turnkeydoc.com/training-tutorials/sexual-harassment-training/ The law defines sexual harassment as unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile work environment. “Conduct of A Sexual Nature” is broken into 3 parts. Verbal, Visual and Physical. Verbal sexual harassment includes comments about clothing, a person’s body; sexual or gender-based jokes or remarks; requesting sexual favors or repeatedly asking a person out; sexual innuendos; threats, spreading rumors about a person’s personal or sexual life; or foul and obscene language Visual sexual harassment includes posters, drawings, pictures, screensavers, cartoons, emails or text of a sexual nature. Physical sexual harassment includes assault; impeding or blocking movement; inappropriate touching such as kissing, hugging, patting, stroking, or rubbing, sexual gesturing or even leering or staring. There are two categories of sexual harassment: The first is Quid pro quo, which literally means "this for that" It occurs when a boss uses job rewards, such as raises or promotions or punishment, such as demotions or firing to force employees into a sexual relationship or sexual act. This is sexual harassment. The second is Hostile environment, which is defined as conduct that unreasonably interferes with work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. For example, it may be sexual harassment if repeated sexual comments makes someone so uncomfortable that their work performance suffers or they decline professional opportunities because it will put them in contact with the harasser. In both types of sexual harassment, employees must prove that the conduct was offensive to someone, not necessarily the intended victim of the sexual harassment, Here is an example: Say a male employee tells a dirty joke to a female co-worker. She thinks it's funny, but a second woman passing by finds it offensive. That joke could contribute to a hostile environment claim simply because someone finds it offensive. There are two conditions that determine liability for employers in cases of hostile environment sexual harassment: The employer knew or should have known about the sexual harassment, and The employer failed to take appropriate corrective action. Having a sexual harassment training program as well as a clear procedure for reporting harassment claims can shield employers from expensive lawsuits.

Seven interactive scenarios use riveting performances and twisting plot lines to subtly challenge employees' beliefs and perceptions. As employees progress through each scenario, they first hear from the alleged victim as they present their view of the events in question. The video pauses and employees are asked to come to an initial conclusion. Discussions follow, which allow conflicting points of view to be aired and explored. Then as the scenario continues, employees are forced to explore for the facts and read between the lines as they hear from the alleged harasser and witnesses. In the end, it becomes apparent that sometimes our bias, perceptions and behaviors may need to be re-evaluated. The interactive design allows trainers and/or learners to choose the style and pace of learning that best meets their needs: Choose Workplace Setting Office, Industrial, Healthcare or Retail/Service available on every DVD.

http://blog.hr360.com/hr-blog/office-romances Video Highlights: 00:04 Office romance…it’s a story nearly as old as the office itself, and it’s becoming increasingly more common. But whether or not workplace romances lead to wedded bliss, they must be handled with care. 00:52 First and most simply, office romances can become a distraction. They can harm the productivity of both the parties involved and their immediate colleagues. Nobody is immune to office gossip…and a budding romance makes for compelling water cooler chat. 01:08 More seriously, an office romance can lead to the perception—real or imagined—of favoritism. When a romance occurs between colleagues at different levels of the company, or when one is in a position to positively influence the career, compensation or opportunities for advancement of the other, the perception of favoritism can arise. 01:57 Next, consider what could happen if a workplace romance turns sour. With a breakup comes the possibility of hard feelings, a stressful environment, disruption of work and productivity or even the potential loss of a valued employee who seeks employment elsewhere to distance him or herself from a former romantic partner. 02:16 Most seriously, an office romance that ends less than amicably can have significant legal consequences. Let’s take a moment to discuss sexual harassment, which is illegal under federal law and the law in most states. 02:59 So what can you do as a supervisor or HR manager to minimize these pitfalls? First, develop a policy on interoffice dating and relationships, and publish it in your employee handbook. 03:43 Finally, draft, publish and distribute a zero-tolerance policy for sexual or any other kind of harassment in the workplace, including threats or intimidation. Remember, in some instances, the liability for charges of sexual harassment or a hostile work environment could land on the employer…so you must work to avoid these situations.
