Preventing Workplace Harassment - Managers (US)
It’s Monday morning and Kathy walks into your office. “I’ve had enough!” she sighs. She explains that in their weekly meetings, John, her immediate supervisor, always tells his team the “dirty joke of the week” from his Saturday night poker game. Other employees laugh, but Kathy doesn’t find it funny. John also keeps a calendar of scantily clad women posted in his office, despite Kathy’s comments that she finds the calendar offensive. “It’s harassment,” Kathy complains. Later in the day, you ask John about the jokes and the calendar. “I can’t believe it!” says John, “Kathy complained didn’t she? Some people have no sense of humor.”
