Why is an anti-sexual harassment policy important to your organisation?
An employer is liable for the actions of their employees unless they can prove that they have taken reasonably practicable steps to prevent discrimination and harassment from occurring. Implementing an anti-sexual harassment policy allows you to:
- Demonstrate that your organisation is up to date with its sexual harassment legal obligations. Take control of discrimination or harassment issues before they flare up.
- Reduce wastage of valuable time and resources in handling complaints.
- Avoid negative effects on staff morale and your organisation’s reputation.
- Improve customer service and the overall performance and bottom-line of your organisation.
- Ensure that services are provided equitably to all sectors of the community and decisions about employees are based on merit.
- Help to ensure that individuals develop to their full capacity and make their maximum contribution.
- Enhance your organisation’s image and customer relations.
