Sexual Harassment Course

The Equality Act 2010 in the UK defines harassment as unwanted conduct of a sexual nature (or related to gender reassignment, sex or another protected characteristic) that:

a) Violates someone's dignity, or
b) Creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.

Companies rightly have a zero tolerance of sexual harassment and violations may lead not only to disciplinary action but also prosecution of the perpetrators.

Our Sexual Harassment Course will help your employees to identify, avoid and report behaviour that constitutes sexual harassment to build an inclusive workplace.
