Sexual Harassment Course Description

This course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. You’ll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent.
It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations. The course also coves investigation from the employer’s perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.

Duration: 55 minutes (Note: This is based on the amount of video content shown and is rounded off. It does not account in any way for loading time or thinking time on the questions).

Target Audience

This course is mainly designed for managers and employers to give them information on what to do in the event that sexual harassment takes place in the workplace.


Sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. Experiencing it can be one of the most difficult situations a worker can face, however it should not be happening and all workers are protected from it by law. Handling accusations can be difficult, and if not done correctly can lead to the company being held liable along with the perpetrator.

Further Progression

We also offer a Disciplinary Procedures course that gives more information on disciplinary actions to take when sexual harassment occurs in the workplace.
