Unlawful Harassment: Prevention & Training | Prohibited Policies

Call For A Free Consultation (855) 534-1490

Unfortunately, employees have generally come to understand “unlawful harassment” to be any kind of harassment (i.e. managing their performance and holding them accountable). But this is not the case – not that we recommend general harassment as good management style.

Unlawful harassment is harassment based on a “protected category,” such as “sex.” But it’s not just limited to sexual harassment. It includes an ever expanding list of other “protected categories,” including harassment based on race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, and sexual orientation.

Prohibited harassment policies and training are key to preventing unlawful harassment claims. If your employee has complained of unlawful harassment immediate and legally proper handling of the complaint is critical to minimizing or avoiding liability. We can help you satisfy your legal obligations to prevent and correct unlawful harassment in the workplace by conducting a prompt, thorough, and unbiased workplace investigation.

If an employee has complained or you have been sued, time is of the essence. This cannot wait until tomorrow. Call or e-mail us today.
