$1.6M Awarded in Harassment Claim
$1.6M Awarded in Harassment Claim Due to Employer Non-Action
Experts are urging employers to take notice after $1.6M in damages was awarded to an employee in California after her employer took no steps to address a racial harassment claim.
JD Supra reminds employers that inaction will not be tolerated by the courts and also cautions businesses that simply having an anti-harassment policy isn’t enough.
These experts further urge organizations to provide anti-harassment training to employees at all levels, stating that “non-supervisory employees have the power to do as much damage as management” to a workplace culture.
