Non-Compliant Harassment Policies
Up-to-date, legally compliant harassment policies can protect your company from harassment and discrimination claims. But when was the last time your policies were reviewed by an attorney? Ever?
Do your policies contain an up-to-date list of protected categories, including those recently added by county or municipal ordinances (if you’re in Pennsylvania), or those added by the New Jersey Domestic Partnership Act or the Smoking Law (if you’re in New Jersey)? Do your policies include both a complaint and an anti-retaliation provision? Do they include a definition of both harassment and sexual harassment?
If you are like most companies in the U.S., from the small to the very large, chances are the answer to most of these questions is “no” – if that’s the case, your policies are not compliant. Tune in to find out how to do a self-assessment of your current policies, and what to do if your policies need to be updated.
