In today’s business climate, it is critical for employers to establish and maintain a work environment that is free from harassment and discrimination.
Companies who have trained their managers on workplace harassment awareness and have also established anti-harassment and discrimination policies may think that they’ve done enough to reduce their risk. However, it is equally as important to train your employees to be sensitive about their own behaviors, comments, gestures, or mannerisms that may be construed as harassment or creating a hostile work environment and also understand how they can intervene as bystanders when confronting discrimination and harassment situations.

Investigating Harassment & Discrimination Claims
Employers are responsible for conducting a thorough and prompt investigation into complaints of misconduct, discrimination, harassment and violence in order to properly identify, address and prevent recurrence of these problems.
EANE can provide an impartial third party. Our investigation services are conducted by skilled and experienced HR Professionals.
The true cost of harassment is more than legal fees. Harassment causes low morale, decreased productivity, increased turnover and reputational harm. To eliminate harassment in the workplace, employers must take proactive steps toward prevention.
