Managing Workplace Harassment

Workplace harassment can present challenges for employees and employers alike. There can be a variety of forms of harassment, including slaps, unwanted touches or phrases that can make one feel uncomfortable at the job. These actions are not acceptable and should be reported so that they do not spread! 

For employees, harassment can create a hostile work environment that makes it difficult to do their job. Not only is this emotionally draining, but it can also lead to physical health problems. In addition, workplace harassment can have a negative impact on an employee's career. This is especially true if the harassment is directed at a protected characteristic, such as race or gender.  

For employers, workplace harassment can result in decreased productivity and employee morale. In extreme cases, it can even lead to legal action. This is why it is important for employers to create a policy against workplace harassment and to make sure that all employees are aware of it.
