What is the True Cost of Sexual Harassment?
For those involved in a sexual harassment in the workplace case, whether it's victims, perpetrators, or witnesses, the damage and the claims brought to light tend to have very long lasting negative effects. According to ERC, the average harassment claim will typically run an organization anywhere from $75,000 to $125,000 in legal bills alone, and that's assuming the claim is settled out of court. If it goes to court, employers are often looking at $150,000 to $250,000 in legal fees. If the employer is found liable in the case, the price tag can be hefty. The largest sum ever awarded in a sexual harassment case was $168 million in 2012. A study conducted in 1988, estimated a Fortune 500 company loses $6.7 million a year due to sexual harassment.
Don't let employees of your company put your firm at risk. Educate them with what the law allows and does not allow in the workplace, plus teach them how to create and foster an atmosphere of safety and positive culture, respecting those that they work with.

Top 5 Reasons You Need This Course:
- The Law Requires It (where applicable) - More and more states are requiring employers to provide sexual harassment training.
- It Sends The Right Message - Employees who have ever felt uncomfortable, harassed, or victimized by another employee or manager will greatly appreciate their employer's efforts to address the subject. It sends a strong message from the top that harassment will not be accepted at this company.
- It Creates a Defense to Employee Claims - According to Horton Management Law, under most state and federal employment discrimination laws, the courts recognize a possible defense for employers who have taken reasonable efforts to prevent harassment (known as Faragher/Ellerth defense).
- Strengthens Your Workplace Culture - By communicating your firm's values, goals, and policies in meaningful ways, employees can be motivated to act ethically and respectfully, while protecting their employer and their workplace.
- Increases Awareness of Acceptable and Unacceptable Behavior - The ability to recognize the many forms of misconduct and bullying is an important step in motivating employees to respond when they experience or observe any type of harassment.
Training is one of the most effective and efficient ways to raise awareness of the different types of unacceptable behavior - from the obvious to the subtle - and remove all uncertainty about what is and what isn't appropriate in the workplace.
