Implement a Harassment Policy
By David Scott Peters
Weekly Restaurant Tip
It’s not enough to tell them not to do it.
Sexual harassment is rampant in the restaurant industry, and because of that, it’s not “if” you get hit with a sexual harassment issue, but “when.” Not only do you need to incorporate anti-sexual harassment into your training, but you need to have a policy about sexual harassment and a grievance procedure. The policy tells your employees what your position is on sexual harassment, what will happen if anyone claims sexual harassment and how to file a complaint of sexual harassment. It’s a great tool to back up what you provide in training and another great piece of protection for you when someone wants to file a lawsuit against you.
