Dealing with Sexual Harassment

The employee should:

  • Tell the harasser that the conduct is unwelcome, offensive, and must stop immediately.
  • Demonstrate that the conduct is unwelcome by walking away, avoiding interaction and using appropriate facial expression and body language.
  • Report behavior to immediate supervisor, Human Resources, or appropriate member of management, or as defined by the Company’s anti-harassment policy.
The supervisor should:
  • Listen actively. Allow complainant to tell his/her story.
  • Keep parties separate. Never force a confrontation between complaining employee and alleged harasser. Don’t put the complainant back to work with the alleged harasser.
  • Notify the Human Resources department or other appropriate member of management as soon as possible, as defined by the company's anti-harassment policy.
