Sexual harassment prevention: Does your workplace use this tool?

It's clear that sexual harassment continues to be a rampant problem throughout California workplaces. It's also clear that sexual harassment prevention training doesn't serve to eradicate this unconscionable behavior since most large organizations have developed educational programs yet the problem persists. However, there's one anti-sexual harassment tool could radically improve the situation: climate surveys.

Climate surveys are easy for organizations to start implementing in their offices immediately. These are nothing more than surveys help workplaces understand the "climate" of sexual harassment in the organization at any given time. The survey simply asks employees to state whether they have recently experienced or witnessed sexual harassment. In the event that the answer is yes, the employee can complete a simple form that includes a checklist of behaviors that they happened to have witnessed or been victimized by.

Climate surveys like this are an excellent way for sexually-harassed employees to make their voices heard in a completely anonymous fashion. These surveys create the opportunity for otherwise shy employees to speak up and let management know that problems exist. Although the surveys might not help in pinpointing who the abusers and victims are, they can clue employers in on the fact that something needs to be done to eradicate sexual harassment from the workplace.

If you have been victimized by sexual harassment or any other kind of employment law violations, you might want to learn more about your legal rights and options.
