California Sexual Harassment Poster
Recommended for all businesses and organizations in California.
All employers must prevent sexual harassment from occurring in the workplace in accordance with state, federal, and local laws. This responsibility includes implementing and enforcing a written policy addressing workplace harassment.
State civil rights departments and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) have mandated that all companies must provide information to their employees, applicants, and vendors regarding harassment in the workplace.
Failure to comply with applicable laws can result in costly lawsuits and liabilities of up to $50,000 per complaint. Judgments in harassment lawsuits routinely exceed $1 million.
Claims of workplace harassment are the most common types of complaints filed with state and federal agencies. Recent court decisions indicate that employers may be held responsible even if they were unaware the harassment was taking place.
The best defense against workplace harassment is to publish your policy in a place that everyone can see it and educate employees about this all-too common problem.
Personnel Concepts’ California Sexual Harassment Law Poster is based on EEOC guidelines and includes the following critical information: Definitions of sexual harassment, employer liability standard, examples of harassment, possible disciplinary action for policy violations, how to prevent harassment from occurring, and instructions on how to report a harassment complaint.
Order now, and avoid costly fines and expensive employee-driven lawsuits.
