Ontario Women's Directorate, Toronto.
Harassment, like other forms of violence against women, is not a new problem. It is not a problem that will just go away, but it can be stopped. This guide is designed for use by organizations and employers to help them develop policies and implement programs in their workplace that address workplace sexual harassment. It focuses on Canadian employers' responsibilities and the organizational benefits of stopping sexual harassment in the workplace. Chapters are: (1) The Nature of Sexual Harassment; (2) How Is Sexual Harassment Defined?; (3) Impacts and Costs of Sexual Harassment; (4) The Legal Framework; (5) Taking Action; (6) Case Studies; and (7) The Benefits of Prevention. Succinct chapter summaries and several quizzes help the reader retain the material. Other resources are a listing of Canadian phone numbers and agencies that can help, sample policies and procedures; a listing of related videos and films; and a reading list. (JBJ)
