#MeToo: Should employers mandate sexual harassment training?

Among the many business law issues for employers in the Denver region, sexual harassment claims remain a top concern. After the #MeToo movement arose, several states began making it mandatory for all workers to participate in anti-sexual harassment training. Although Colorado does not require mandatory training, employers can still educate their employees about sexual harassment in the workplace.

How does training help prevent business law issues for employers?

Most employers strive to remain aware of what is happening in the work environment they provide. However, sexual harassment may be a deeply hidden problem in your company. The problem might stay hidden, but on the other hand, it could ignite into a slew of complaints. Some of these complaints could turn into litigation, which may impact your company’s bottom line.

Other benefits of anti-sexual harassment training

  • Mandatory training lets your entire staff know that you will not tolerate improper behavior
  • Proper training increases employee awareness of unacceptable workplace behaviors
  • Educating and training employees encourages victims of sexual harassment to speak out or file a report
  • Shows your staff and your clientele that you foster a safe and healthy business environment

Can an employment law attorney help?

Yes, a lawyer can help in many ways. For example, legal assistance in creating or rewriting an employee handbook can strengthen your efforts to eliminate illegal behaviors in the workplace. Experienced attorneys understand how to make your policies clear and precise so that all your workers understand the consequences of improper behaviors.

If legal issues involving sexual harassment arise, you will already have an advocate familiar with you and your business to help you overcome your problems.
