Harassment in the workplace: How to prevent and respond?

Dbriefs Legal | 18 June 2019 | 12:00 pm CET

How should a company react, from a practical perspective, in case psychological and/or sexual harassment may be disclosed or witnessed by its employees? What is the appropriate conduct to adopt for dealing with these situations in practice? Harassment may be defined as the repetition of acts with the intent or effect of deteriorating working conditions in a manner likely to affect the employee's rights and dignity, physical and mental health, or to jeopardize their professional future. Employers who failed to comply with its obligations in this respect could expose to being sentenced to pay substantial amounts in damages to any affected employees, as well to being convicted for criminal offences. In order to avoid such situations, the employer must take preventive actions and react quickly in the event of suspected harassment at work.
