Sexual Harassment Awareness & Prevention (1/2 Day)

01-14-ER03
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.  Sexual harassment consists of unwanted, unwelcome sexual advances or sexual conduct in the workplace that has the effect of unreasonably interfering with a person’s work performance.  This type of behavior can create an intimidating or hostile work environment.  We can no longer afford the expense of lost employee morale, motivation, and productivity.  We must be able to recognize sexual harassment behavior and know how to prevent it.
    As a Washington State employee we have a responsibility to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. And we need to know what the responsibilities of individual employees, supervisors, and managers are.
