Modern workplaces can be energetic, chaotic environments. Business is moving faster than ever and companies are expected to respond accordingly. There is no doubt that there is a high premium placed on efficiency and speed. However, not all companies are able to adapt this way and that can have a devastating impact on the business.
These same observations can also be made about sexual harassment claims in the workplace. Employees who feel as though they have been abused, harassed or mistreated on the job expect employers to respond appropriately and quickly once their concerns have been expressed. Employers who fail to do this can face some devastating consequences including bad press, destroyed reputations and financial penalties.
