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.
