Overview

"Can you say anything about sex at the office anymore? Yes, maybe, but read this first.

Sexual harassment is a malign specter hovering over workplaces everywhere. One touch of its foul breath can devastate businesses, causing them to lose millions of dollars, not to mention waste bundles of time and energy. Needless to say, organizations are running scared.

This book provides managers with vital information to protect themselves and their companies from lawsuits, bad publicity, decreased employee morale, and other associated miseries. Topics covered include:

• laws and court decisions (including the most recent Supreme Court rulings)

• what behavior is acceptable--and what isn't

• preventive policies and staff training

• investigating complaints, and more.

With one of every three cases filed with the EEOC involving a sexual harassment claim, managers need help. This complete ""answer book""--with real-life scenarios, self-help quizzes, checklists, and thoughtful analysis--gives them just the guidance they need."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The complete "answer book" for all your questions about what behavior is okay and what is not.

Library Journal
The increase in the number of lawsuits alleging sexual harassment has become one of the most challenging and perplexing legal issues for human resource managers. Orlov, president of a consulting and training firm, and Roumell, a principal at a law firm specializing in labor and employment law, have provided practical guidelines for human resource managers who have to deal with the sexual harassment issue on a daily basis. The work contains information on investigating complaints, suggestions for preventing sexual harassment, a sample prevention policy, preliminary considerations for training programs, case scenarios, checklists, and "test your knowledge" quizzes. It is written in clear and simple language and is a good source for better understanding the existing laws. It is not intended, as the authors state, to provide legal advice or in-depth analysis of the law on sexual harassment. Recommended for patrons involved in human resources and general business collections.--Bellinda Wise, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
