Preventing Sexual Harassment Training Course

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

According to the Equality Act 2010, sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature that either violates someone's dignity or creates a hostile environment.

Our Preventing Sexual Harassment Online Training Course will help your employees identify, avoid and report behaviour that constitutes sexual harassment.
