In order to prevent sexual harassment, the employer should ensure all employees are trained and understand the consequences (legal and monetary) to any illegal actions. It is suggested that formal training should be provided to employees as soon as they are hired and continued training should be provided to supervisors on a regular basis. “Formal training is essential and … should be thoroughly documented” (Calvasina et al., 2008).

IMPROVING AWARENESS OF YOUTH WORKERS’ RIGHTS 4 discussions, and a quiz on the company’s harassment policy (Calvasina et al., 2008). In addition to formal training, employers could also conduct more thorough investigations on potential candidates for employment; this could prevent the hiring of a previous offender. In addition, companies could provide training on the EEOC Youth @ Work website to further the teenagers’ knowledge on the laws. This website could be the difference between a productive, new member of today’s workforce and a traumatized, victimized one. The EEOC is a proactive directorate that has sponsored many events in order to educate the ever-growing teenage workforce. Along with those events, the Youth @ Work website is an additional training point. When searching through the page, one can find links to the laws that the EEOC directly enforces, as well as other organizations’ websites that provide additional information about one’s rights. The EEOC website is user friendly and contains quite a bit of information that would be useful to a new member of the working force by explaining the rights of that individual. The EEOC website also provides people with real cases that have been worked through the EEOC’s process. Although the EEOC has filed many lawsuits, this is not their primary goal; the intent of this initiative is to teach teens and employers how to prevent, recognize, and report sexual harassment. This website is a great method that can be utilized by any human resource management section to further training.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
