Employees should avoid acts that can result to sexual harassment claims. Furthermore, people should also help report sexual harassment cases. Some victims may be afraid of reporting them because of fear of losing their jobs or not being promoted. Those who are sexually harassing them might be making threats against them already. Employees have a responsibility to their co-workers to promote obedience to the law and the protection from sexual harassment through following sexual harassment reporting guidelines. This way, they are also protecting their environment from being a toxic one where people fear what sexual harassment can do to the stability and development of their careers. In addition, employees can also recommend improvements to sexual harassment policies that are appropriate to their organizations. They can ensure that these policies remain relevant to their workplace and cultures that may improve these policies’ effectiveness.
