We all know the definition of sexual harassment... the unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature in the workplace or learning environment (according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). But sexual harassment does not always have to be specifically about sexual behavior. It can be subtle... like refusing to take no for an answer when asking for a date and then being turned down by a co-worker.
When we perpetuate stereotypes about people based on things like their appearance or where they come from, not only is it unprofessional and disrespectful… it also can be illegal. Actions and even conversations about a co-worker based on their national origin or ethnicity is a violation of policy and can lead to legal issues if not stopped. Yes, we all have a right to think what we want to think. But… it's critical that we refrain from expressing those kinds of views - publicly or privately – by words or actions, in the workplace.
When a person in a position of power decides to target an employee, they are often hurtful and clearly inappropriate — just like a schoolyard bully. This is compounded by the situations where the bully is also the boss. But the situation can and should be addressed. Like other bullies, a boss who’s out of control needs to be reminded when they cross the line.
Recognizing and stopping harassment is an essential component of a respectful and innovative workplace. These easy-to-use cards provide a simple model along with thought-provoking questions on effective ways to address and prevent workplace harassment and bullying. These cards are great for a quick training reminder, reinforcement or as a conversation generator.
