Prevention of Workplace Sexual Assault

Sexual Assault & Rape

Sexual Discrimination in the Workplace

Discrimination 

​Sexual discrimination in the workplace comes in many different forms and has far-reaching effects on individuals in the workplace, especially for women. Know what to say to a customer or employee when they report discrimination or abuse.

Workplace Code of Conduct Sexual Harassment

Code of Conduct

Addressing the problem starts with a code of conduct that clearly defines what “inappropriate behavior” means in the context of your organization. Redirect helps companies design and implement policies that clearly address behavior standards.

Our Solution: Rapid Response Sexual Misconduct Investigations

The scope of an investigation should be driven by the behavioral requirements set forth in the code of conduct, or the referral question. Information should be gathered through multiple methods and guided by an understanding of trauma and offending behavior. The behavioral-based conclusion should consider logical alternative explanations and be the best fit—requiring the least inferential leap—to the available data.

Scientific

The scope of an investigation should be driven by the behavioral requirements set forth in the code of conduct, or the referral question. Information should be gathered through multiple methods and guided by an understanding of trauma and offending behavior. The behavioral-based conclusion should consider logical alternative explanations and be the best fit—requiring the least inferential leap—to the available data.

Trauma-Informed

Our Specialists understand that the trauma that may result from incidents of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other misconduct can manifest in a variety of ways. The interview questions and techniques employed should reflect this knowledge and create a respectful, empathic approach that results in an experience that is as comfortable as possible, given the circumstances, and that maximizes the chances of obtaining reliable and relevant information.

Objective

In cases of sexual harassment and other forms of misconduct, all people conducting the investigation should be free of personal and financial relationships that might constitute conflicts of interest and thus impair their judgment and impartiality.

Why Sexual Misconduct Training?

Some say a reckoning is coming. The #metoo movement is not slowing down and sexual misconduct allegations are rising. Claims of an unsafe or hostile workplace can lead to lawsuits, executive firings, employee protests, or walkouts. Aggrieved customers, through social media, can target companies that do not respond appropriately, threatening scandal or even the company’s viability.

However, we see this environment as an opportunity. Organizations that put the right systems in place can give employees the freedom to speak up, create a safe work environment, and earn the trust of their staff and customers.

Imagine your employees saying:

  • I love working here
  • I feel safe working here
  • I feel supported by my company
  • I can tell my story to someone who understands

Imagine your managers saying:

  • I have the confidence to handle crisis situations
  • I have a well-documented, behavior-based report to inform my decision-making
  • My team trusts me to be fair and impartial
  • I am working with a partner in this process I can trust
