that all employees have a workplace in which they are treated with appro-
priate respect. It is necessary for employers to establish affirmative tools
and methods for combating sexual harassment in the workplace.
Companies should sensitize employees through interactive training and
treat all complaints as serious matters. Appropriate discipline for offenders,
and steps to prevent subsequent offenses, should be the rule. Once a com-
plaint has been adjudicated, efforts must be taken to ensure a smooth and
retaliation-free transition for the employees coming back into the work-
place. Follow-up counseling and/or periodic meetings individually with
the party or parties involved should be provided as warranted. Sexual
harassment policies are recommended that support ethics programs and
ethical modeling by leaders and supervisors and that link key values such
as respect and trust.
