Sexual Harassment Among Gen Z Workers
Sexual harassment is a topic that has been addressed in training workshops and company policies for some time. However, much of the focus and research has been on sexual harassment directed toward adult workers, whereas the specific topic of teenage sexual harassment is one that needs to be more clearly addressed, especially given the number of lawsuits now being filed by young workers.
The objectives of this session will be:
- discuss the rights and responsibilities of teenage workers with regards to sexual harassment
- focus on the psychological, physical, and behavioral effects on teenage victims
- share examples of recent court cases dealing with this issue
- generate ideas for future HR/organizational actions to address this phenomenon
