Posted on Jan. 18, 2018

Michael Patrick O'Brien, employment attorney: “Employers must follow the model recommended for good personal health—prevention and treatment. An organization must try to prevent harassment by 1) effective training, 2) clear policies, and 3) creating a culture of respect and civility, but it also must swiftly treat any conditions that do arise by 1) investigation, 2) enforcement of policies, and 3) appropriate remedies needed to ensure the maintenance of a culture of civility.”
