Covered in this course

The Sexual Harassment Awareness Training course is broken down into 3 sections.

1) Sexual Harassment Awareness

This first section clarifies what sexual harassment is, the different types, and the possible side effects for the victim. We also look at the legal aspects and the importance of a positive workplace culture.

An introduction to sexual harassment awareness.

2) Identifying Sexual Harassment

This is a scenario-based section. We present you with workplace examples and then you need to decide whether you think each situation is sexual harassment or not. We have a particular focus on subtle behaviours to shed much-needed light on the ‘grey areas’.

Section 2 of our course looks at identifying sexual harassment as part of sexual harassment in the workplace training.

3) Confronting and Reporting Sexual Harassment

Our final section takes you through the two stages of confronting sexual harassment - the informal approach and the formal route. We cover each stage and provide you with information on the different external services that are available.

Confronting and Reporting Sexual Harassment in the Workplace.

4.14 out of 5

The training and set up was very good and clear. I was surprised at the absence of male to male and female to female in the situations segment. There was only passing reference to male to male harassment and the only example of that is where they had previously been in a relationship which subsequently didn't work out - there was also no animation for this one. I appreciate that in such a short session it is difficult to include all specific examples but for some, it may be very necessary to set out all situations somewhere otherwise it may not be perceived as harassment. At the moment there is also a lot of discussion around the definitions of sex and gender and I found it interesting that the training said gender is one of the 9 protected characteristics in the Equality Act.

Informative and reassuring

I found this course to be extremely helpful and reassuring - the latter because I have been in situations in the past where I felt uncomfortable/humiliated when someone has said or done something I deemed to be inappropriate and I was made to feel like a killjoy when I voiced disapproval. Now I know that I have a right to "feel my own feelings" and am allowed to say when I'm uncomfortable. Thank you for this training course.

Legislation relating to Sexual Harassment

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

Employees are protected by a few different acts of parliament if they feel they’re being sexually harassed at work:

  • The Sex Discrimination Act protects people from discrimination on the grounds of sex or marital status.
  • The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act made intentional harassment a criminal offence.
  • The Protection from Harassment Act made it a criminal offence to pursue conduct that leads to harassment, or fear that violence will be used. If convicted, someone can be sentenced to up to six months in prison, or get a fine of up to £5000.
  • The Equality Act ensures the workplace is a fair environment for all employees, whilst respecting the protected characteristics of each individual.
  • The Health & Safety at Work Act ensures that employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all employees while they’re at work.
