Restaurant Sexual Harassment Prevention

June 6th, 2019
restaurant workers

While sexual harassment occurs in many different workplaces, certain industries are more prone to sexually inappropriate misconduct than others. For numerous reasons, the restaurant industry is especially prone to sexual harassment. Each staff position in a restaurant requires a unique set of skills. Cooks, wait staff, management, busboys, and even patrons join to make a restaurant run smoothly. While it is this diversity that makes a restaurant a vibrant and enjoyable place to work, it can also be the cause for misunderstandings. What may be intended as an innocent or flattering comment by one person may be interpreted as an intimidating or degrading advance by another. Many states and municipalities have adopted measures to help decrease the growing number of sexual harassment incidents.

Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, the restaurant industry has been one of the slowest to adopt sexual harassment training and preventative measures. Experts who specialize in restaurant sexual harassment believe that most incidents are not intentionally malicious or meant to intimidate. Most offenders simply do not know what sexual harassment entails or that their actions may be offensive. Proper training can educate employees on how to avoid and respond to sexual harassment. Many believe training should start during the onboarding process.
