When should the employer act?

What is banter, and what is harassment?

Who can make a claim?

Designed for support staff, including those with little or no idea of what sexual harassment in the workplace looks like, this session will talk provide viewers with an overview of what harassment, is, as defined in the Equality Act 2010.

Kathy Daniels will discuss what should be covered within your firm’s harassment policy and will offer practical guidance on what the viewer should do if approached by a colleague who claims to have been the victim of harassment.

Consideration will be given to how best to support the individual without giving an opinion and the courses of action available to the individual, including raising a grievance in accordance with the Acas Code of Practice: Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures.

Finally, this session will discuss the importance of organisational culture in respect of stopping harassment; Regardless of whether there has been a complaint regarding harassment at your place of work, Kathy will encourage viewers to reflect upon whether senior management exhibit behaviours that could be interpreted as harassment, whether their company demonstrate that harassment will not be tolerated in the workplace, and if so how this message is communicated.
