Workplace harassment is unfortunately an ever growing issue in labour relations that legally holds employers to certain obligations. Particularly, the law stipulates that an employer must take reasonable measures to prevent any harassment in the workplace and, when such conduct is brought to his attention, he is obliged to prevent such ongoing conduct. As such, the employers obligation is two fold. Firstly, he must implement a formal comprehensive and duly applied anti-harassment policies and make sure that they are known by all employees. Secondly, the employer must intervene swiftly and effectively following a harassment complaint by conducting a rigorous and objective investigation.
