In order to create a workplace culture free from harassment, an organization’s leadership must communicate that sexual harassment will not be tolerated and that preventing and addressing harassment is a high priority.

One example of a tool that can be used to communicate an employer’s ongoing commitment to preventing and responding to harassment and retaliation, and to holding harassers accountable for their conduct, is a quarterly anti-harassment check-in.

Employers can use the following check-in, or a variation, as a means to remind employees – including senior leadership – that they should review and understand the company’s anti-harassment policies; to prompt questions about the policies and reporting of inappropriate behavior; to encourage reporting by victims and bystanders; and to flag issues for follow-up by HR or leadership.
