Be cognizant of gender stereotypes
when drafting policy language.
Harassment can happen between
same and different sexes and
transgendered employees.
Empower witnesses to step forward.
For example, if a more senior
employee witnesses a more junior
employee being harassed, he or she
should feel comfortable stepping
in to alleviate the situation and
reporting it afterward. Ensure all

employees understand they too have
a responsibility to keep the workplace
harassment free.
Ensure there are adequate
reporting structures for incidents
and complaints. Bear in mind that
there should always be more than
one contact for reporting sexual
harassment so that employees can
report to an alternative contact if they
are not comfortable with reporting to
the main contact. Ensure that contact

information is clearly posted and
communicated and that the contacts
listed are adequately trained.
Ensure that the policy communicates
the need for confidentiality. The
policy should identify circumstances
when information about a complaint
or an investigation may be
disclosed, and should also confirm
confidentiality expectations for
employees during an investigation.
Include realistic and easy to understand
examples of sexual harassment.
Summarize the investigation
procedure with the objective of
ensuring consistency in investigations
and record keeping.
The policy should clearly identify
that reprisal against a complainant
or witness for participating in an
investigation is prohibited and that
a breach of this obligation will result
in discipline.
The policy should also discuss the
employment consequences for
committing sexual or other forms of
harassment.
In Ontario, the policy must also
address the employers reporting
obligations to the complainant and
harasser, if he/she is an employee.
The policy should also confirm
that nothing in the policy prevents
employees from seeking other external
remedies, including those under
applicable human rights legislation.

Consistency with Other Policies

Employers also need to consider
how other policies within the company
intersect with the harassment policy. It
is important that other policies reference
the prohibitions to ensure that employees
have clear guidelines and understand that
respect in the workplace flows though all
aspects of the business.
For example, employer electronic
communication policies and bring your
own device policies should clearly identify
that employees have to act in line with
the sexual harassment policy when using
company systems and communicating
with employees and customers. The policy
should also identify that the company
has the right to access information on
company systems in order to monitor
compliance or respond to an incident. 66
