What should I do if I am a manager and an employee comes to me with allegations of sexual harassment?


  1. Home

As a manager, you should review the allegations promptly and take immediate appropriate action.  Appropriate action might include: publicizing the Department's zero tolerance policy; providing training; taking disciplinary action against the harasser; monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis; and taking corrective action to place the victim in the position he/she would have had absent the alleged harassment.
