BUS-12-63 - Workplace Violence and Harassment Prevention

To tell employees that the company does not tolerate harassment is not enough. It's important for the business to outline a specific policy that defines harassment. It must explain what can happen as a result of displaying such actions, as well as what one can do if they believe they have been victimized. This will help create an environment that is a healthy workplace for the individuals involved in the incident and the company in general.
