Sexual Harassment Masterclass

Learning and Best Practice

Who/why attend


It is the company’s responsibility to ensure a safe workplace and a failure to deal with sexual harassment holistically can result in significant damages claims, a dented employee value proposition and reputational dilution. Surveys reveal that sexual harassment has impacted a significant proportion of employees and over the years our law on sexual harassment has developed to include same sex
sexual harassment as well as homosexual sexual harassment.

Course Objective

Artboard 1 copy

As employers it is our responsibility to ensure that we provide a safe workplace that is free from unfair discrimination and that protects human dignity. Employers can’t afford to turn a blind eye to this matter and need to be proactive in terms of educating staff on what sexual harassment comprises as well as what their rights are. Importantly, the pending amendments to the Employment Equity Act provide that if an employer has been found guilty of an unfair discrimination claim, it will not be issued with a compliance certificate.
