Organizations should generally take steps to avoid similar situations. It is possible to strengthen or implement employee training programs in areas such as anti-discrimination. This would help employees understand their rights and responsibilities, as well as the company’s expectations and policies.
b) It is important to review and update company policies as necessary to make sure they cover all potential concerns related to harassment, discrimination and retaliation. These policies can cover human resources and employee conduct as well as whistleblower protection.
c. Relevant managerial issues include making sure that the leadership has a clear vision of how to create and maintain a supportive work environment, and that employees have access to reporting tools and communication channels.
Organizations should also consider regular audits, assessments, and the implementation of a tracking system to track and respond to any complaints. It’s also important to have a clear investigation process and a system of accountability, with appropriate disciplinary actions.
