EEOC Releases Guidance on Workplace Harassment Prevention

Agency Offers Recommendations for Employers

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently issued Promising Practices for Preventing Harassment, a guidance document that features harassment prevention recommendations for employers in four broad categories:

  • Leadership and accountability;
  • Harassment policies;
  • Harassment complaint systems; and
  • Harassment training.

Under each of the four categories, the guidance lists numerous actions employers can take, such as:

  • Leadership and accountability;
  • Harassment policies;
  • Harassment complaint systems; and
  • Harassment training.

The document states that while the practices it discusses are not legal requirements under federal employment discrimination laws, they may enhance compliance efforts.
