What is an Anti Harassment Policy

An anti-harassment policy is a set of rules designed to prevent harassment from occurring in the workplace. This type of policy typically includes a definition of harassment, procedures for reporting harassment, and consequences for violating the policy.

An anti harassment policy can help prevent and deal with harassment in the workplace. When defining harassment, it is important to include both verbal and physical conduct forms of harassment.

How to Write an Anti Harassment Policy

When developing an anti harassment policy for the workplace is important to focus on overall company objectives and applicable regulatory requirements.

These objectives should encompass the following aspects, as applicable:

  • That unwelcome conduct and harassing conduct will not be tolerated.
  • That harassment complaints will be dealt with quickly and appropriately.
  • That job performance should not be affected by harassment.
  • That personnel will report harassment as soon as possible after it occurs.
  • That there will be no unwanted comments or unwanted actions of a sexual nature.
  • That no harassment will be tolerated concerning sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, race, color or religion.
