    This engaging best-seller, narrated by former Attorney General of the United States Dick Thornburgh, delivers the message that Management will not tolerate harassment and will respond to complaints swiftly, fairly, and severely.

    Training Topics:

  • Sexual Harassment: legal definition
  • Quid Pro Quo
  • Hostile Work Environment
  • Third-party harassment: customers, suppliers, consultants
  • Alcohol and problem behavior
  • Off-site social events
  • Management responsibility to stop the harassment
  • Importance of prompt internal investigation and effective resolution
  • Consequences for harassers: discipline, dismissal, prosecution, civil damages
  • Consequences for company management: fines, damages, sanctions, public opinion

    The expression “the writing on the wall” refers to a warning of bad times to come. In the case of this compelling narrative story, especially when that writing is sexual graffiti on the wall of a toilet stall, retaliating against a person who complained of sexual harassment by co-workers. That's what leads off this forthright employee awareness-training program. Management fails to stop the offensive conduct or discipline the retaliation. What started as an internal complaint escalates into a very public class-action law suit. The writing on the wall is seized—hacked out of the toilet wall—as evidence. The serious consequences for all involved—harassers, supervisors, managers—will deliver a no-nonsense message to all employees: Juries and judges, government regulators, the media, and the public are more than ready to “throw the book” at sexual harassment. An important message delivered is that top management will not tolerate sexually offensive job-related conduct and will respond to complaints swiftly, fairly, and severely.
