How to Keep Your Workplace Harassment-Free
Employers have a corporate and social responsibility to their employees to provide a safe working environment – specifically a workplace that’s free from harassment and discrimination. Workplace harassment is often associated with unwanted sexual advances but can encompass a myriad of other aspects such as race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability and pregnancy to name a few. Savvy employers understand it makes good business sense to keep the workplace friendly, comfortable and productive. Not only can litigious claims put a big dent on your brand and business reputation, it can easily drive up costs with steep lawyer fees and hefty settlements.
