Every employer needs to have a written, published sexual harassment prevention policy that broadly outlines prohibited conduct, the method to submit a complaint about workplace conduct, and the employerâ€™s investigation procedures upon receipt of a complaint.
Sexual harassment prevention experts Janine Yancey, Patti Perez, Phyllis Cheng, and Ute Krudewagen collaborated to draft this sexual harassment policy template.
