Harassment Liability - Effective Policy and Duty of Care

Your organization must seek to prevent and to address harassment! The courts have expanded the scope of an organization's Duty of Care for the overall work environment. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that private and public organizations have a Duty of Care which is owed to both those they serve and to their employees. Adopting the Duty of Care can immunize organizations from liability and creates a healthy, productive profitable workplace. Be prepared, know what policies you should have in place!
