Is your employer following the EEOC’s four harassment checklists?

| Mar 23, 2017 | Employment Law |

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has always been dedicated to opening opportunities so there is fairness and equity – equal opportunity – in the workplace for everyone.

According to a recent report from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the EEOC’s commissioner is promoting the use of four checklists to deal with sexual harassment. EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum is telling employers they need to use the four checklists put out by the EEOC in order to prevent and handle instances of sexual harassment in the workplace.

What Are the Four Checklists?

According to the article, the EEOC’s four checklists cover:

  • Leadership and accountability
  • Anti-harassment policies
  • Harassment reporting systems and investigations
  • Compliance training

When employers follow these checklists and implement them well, there should be a drastic reduction in instance of workplace harassment.

What Does This Mean for You?

Understanding the checklists your employer should be following to prevent harassment can be extremely empowering. If you are seeing areas where your employer could improve in this regard, you can promote change in your workplace.

Further, this information can be helpful to make sure your rights are not being violated at work.

If you see your company failing in these initiatives, and you feel like you have been mistreated at work, talk with an experienced employment law attorney right away to get the help you need.
