Creating a safer workplace (access required)

Employers must be vigilant about harassment in the age of #MeToo

Companies need formal policies that address harassment in the workplace and outline the rights and obligations of all staff and supervisors. A good policy will be written — though it may be distributed in electronic format — and enforced, according to lawyers. It will define what’s considered unacceptable behavior, including bullying, rudeness, and unprofessional conduct, and employees should sign or electronically acknowledge that they’ve received a copy of the policy.
