Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment
Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment
Recent jury awards:
Most definitions of sexual harassment contain the same key elements:
"…we address our company concerns pertaining to Sexual Harassment by mandating that every new employee sign our strong Policy Statement which prohibits any form of Sexual Harassment"
After Gloria filed her lawsuit, Tom stated at deposition that he didn't remember ever signing any such statement when he was hired the year before.
The fact is that most new employees will sign anything they are required to sign.
"It's mandatory for every employee to attend a company orientation. Our company Sexual Harassment Policies are addressed at length."
Helen sued the company. At trial, the jury discovered that the training was never reinforced, initially inadequate and few if any paid any attention to the rules.
The fact is that company policy requires reinforcement to be taken seriously.
Absenteeism, lower productivity, poor morale, tension, higher health care costs and employee turnover are just some of the negative ramifications which result from a sexually uncomfortable work environment.
