New York Preventing Sexual Harassment for Managers
Sexual harassment continues to remain a real workplace problem. Media stories and studies clarify the high toll that this misconduct takes on targeted employees, coworkers, and the overall work environment. A workplace that allows----and even encourages--such conduct cannot promote respect for all employees fails to obtain their employees’ best performance.

Because managers act on behalf of their employer, they have a special duty to promote a workplace free of sexual harassment, seek to prevent such improper conduct, and effectively respond to instances and complaints.
