The rise in Sexual Harassment in the workplace due to the lack of training

Updated: January 01, 2012

The current economic state has been the largest challenge for many businesses to date.

Many have drawn the conclusion there were several reasons that contribute to the declining economy which includes unemployment, decline in the stock market, weak retail sales as well as consumer credit problems. Furthermore, it may appear that some companies are on the decline because of the economy. However, even before the economic decline many businesses were suffering drastically due to poor leadership training. A company's leadership and how strategic goals are communicated and implemented are essential to the success of an organization's future; from people to activities, culture to leadership. It is through strong effective leadership training that a company can be successful in the present as well as the future. Considering this, the conclusion drawn is leaders need employment law training which in turn will transfer into effective leadership for an organization. In tough economic times, employers often look to reduce their training expenses. Employers who seek to cut costs by avoiding or delaying discrimination and harassment prevention training run a huge risk; they may be unable to defend themselves in a subsequent lawsuit. Nevertheless, in deciding whether to implement discrimination or harassment prevention training, an employer must determine whether the potential future savings resulting from the training will exceed the current expenditures necessary to implement a program today.
