Investigating and managing sexual harassment complaints against staff - latest developments and key legal issues for HR professionals

Who should attend

This course is aimed at HR professionals in education institutions who advise on the investigation and management of sexual harassment complaints against staff or who are responsible for the drafting/updating of their institution’s policies on sexual harassment, grievance and discipline.

Synopsis

The issue of sexual harassment continues to be high profile with widespread local, national and international coverage across multiple sectors and jurisdictions. This has included widespread discussion and analysis of the issue in the education sector and an examination of how institutions currently deal with such allegations and whether their current practices and policies are fit for purpose.

In this session we will consider the latest developments, the key legal issues and provide practical guidance on topics including:

  • the role of HR in ensuring a “zero tolerance” culture
  • strategies for managing complaints and what your policies should say
  • how do you deal with the interplay of managing grievances and the disciplinary process?
  • what are the trickiest issues and how do you manage them?
