Proactive Steps to Address Inappropriate Work Place Conduct and Behavior
(E.g., Harassment or Sexual Harassment)
If comfortable, confront (in a business-like and firm manner) the offending party and clearly communicate that the offending party’s communication, conduct, behavior, or action is inappropriate and must immediately stop.
Incidents that may occur in the work place are generally resolvable, if appropriately and promptly addressed. Appropriate and prompt intervention, and reporting, often result in resolution. Appropriate and prompt intervention, and reporting, also help to minimize the possibility of an incident becoming greater in proportion and more of a concern.
