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.
