Roadmap for Handling Harassment Complaints When Perpetrator is Unknown

When it comes to a textbook case of workplace harassment, an employer’s job is generally straightforward – record the victim’s complaint; interview the victim, the alleged harasser and any potential witnesses; gather evidence; and implement interim measures to separate the victim and the alleged harasser. Then, impose any necessary discipline if harassment is confirmed.

Investigating Claims of Harassment.

Your human resources director has brought you a tough one: one of your sales employees has complained that her Sales Manager harassed her sexually, and had made disparaging racial remarks about a customer.
