Sexual Harassment Complaints – Responding and Investigating

Essential guidance, support and training for leaders and managers on good practice when responding to and investigating, complaints and concerns about Sexual Harassment at Work.

The Worker Protection Act 2023 introduces a specific requirement for employers to take positive action to prevent the sexual harassment of employees at work.  Whilst many organisations will have confidential reporting routes, it is probable that the majority of concerns will be raised via line managers.  It is imperative the line manager treats all complaints and concerns seriously and responds in the appropriate manner.  An insensitive or disinterested response presents a very real risk escalation to tribunal for a breach of the Worker Protection Act and/or discrimination.

This one-hour training session complements your inhouse policies and procedures, it highlights the importance of an appropriate response and explains why this and a follow-on investigation are of paramount importance.

Where required we can dovetail content with inhouse policies and procedures on reporting and investigation.
