Develop a Harassment Prevention Policy
You should develop a policy in consultation with your employees and the union (if your organisation is unionised). You should communicate the policy to all the employees in your organisation through various channels including the employee induction programme, organisation's intranet, human resource handbooks, posters, and employee briefings.
An effective policy should include:
- A clear statement on zero tolerance for harassment.
- Management commitment to prevent and respond to harassment
- Illustrations and examples of workplace harassment.
- Avenues for reporting, recourse and assistance.
- Information on investigation and grievance handling processes.
- Actions to be taken against harasser.
