Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment, in the realm of HR, refers to unwelcome and offensive behavior of a sexual nature that occurs in the workplace, creating a hostile or intimidating environment. HR professionals play a critical role in preventing, addressing, and resolving instances of sexual harassment. This includes establishing clear policies, providing training, and fostering a culture that encourages employees to report incidents. HR’s responsibility involves conducting impartial investigations, taking appropriate corrective actions, and supporting victims. Preventing and addressing sexual harassment is not only a legal obligation but also essential for maintaining a respectful, inclusive, and safe work environment, as well as safeguarding the well-being and dignity of all employees.
