• From Hollywood to Westminster, sexual harassment is hitting the headlines and should be on every employer’s agenda. Not only because all employees deserve to work in an environment free from sexually inappropriate behaviour, but also because employers who fail to prevent harassment at work are as much at risk of being sued as the perpetrators themselves. 

    A first line of defence is, however, to show that you took ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent the harassment – and one of the best way of doing so is to show that all your employees have had up to date and specific training on understanding, preventing, reporting and handling sexual harassment. 

    How can we help? 

    Bevan Brittan provides organisations with essential training at a range of levels

    • full coverage, workforce-wide training for all grades of employee;
    • focussed training for your HR / management teams and
    • board level updates on the key issues and risks.  


    Full coverage workforce training

    Training across your entire workforce on the key issues, including:

    • understanding when the line is crossed from harmless workplace ‘banter’ into the territory of unlawful conduct

    This is an interactive session, illustrated with real-world examples from our extensive experience of defending sexual harassment claims.
