Sexual harassment in the workplace UK

Sexual harassment in the workplace UK course

Are you an employer or business owner in the UK and need to learn more about sexual harassment in the workplace?

Sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature.

Experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace can be one of the most difficult situations a worker can face, however it should not be happening and all workers are protected by UK law from sexual harassment.

Handling accusations of sexual harassment can be difficult, and if not done correctly can lead to the company being held liable along with the perpetrator of the harassment.

Sexual harassment in the workplace UK: what is covered?

This sexual harassment in the workplace course is one of a range of business skills courses that we offer here at UK Online Training.

It starts by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both UK employment law and criminal law.

You’ll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent.

It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations.

The course also covers investigation from the employer’s perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
