Sexual Harassment During Work Meetings

March 25th, 2019
Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers fight for the rights of harassment victims.

Many people must attend off-site meetings, seminars, training sessions, and other events that are related to their work requirements. Workmate attendees may stay in environments far away from home, where there is often alcohol and a more relaxed atmosphere. This could lead, in some cases, to sexual harassment. Those who would not harass a co-worker in the office will not likely change in an off-site setting, but those who would might seem more inclined to do so in a more laid-back environment.

Because there might be an increased proclivity for sexual harassment during a work event, that is not a good reason to cancel activities. The real issue is accountability and demanding acceptable behavior. There are things that can be done by an employer before an event and on a routine basis in the workplace to circumvent sexual harassment. These include:

  • Creating a mission statement that details the ramifications of improper behavior and treatment of others in the workplace, and communicate it thoroughly and regularly
  • Providing easily accessible educational materials that describe what sexual harassment looks like, and what is not acceptable
  • Create a code of conduct prior to an event and mandate that attendees accept it, then communicate that message again during the event
  • Assign security staff during an event, and make sure they know how to respond to sexual harassment situations

Creating and maintaining a place where everyone feels safe is essential to a positive work environment. This means being proactive in taking the above steps, and any other steps that are needed in any work settings.
