Emma Denny from our office provided expert testimony yesterday to the Minnesota House Subcommittee on workplace Safety and Respect. I have included the link (at start time) of her testimony below – and specifically discussed harassment in the work place.
“There’s really only one way to end harassment in the workplace, and that’s to make sure that people are encouraged and empowered to come forward and report it when it happens.” – Emma Denny
She the describes four main mechanisms to make people feel empowered to come forward.
- Ease of reporting the harassment
- Fair investigation procedures
- Prompt and adequate response is taken by the employer
- Strong anti-retaliation polices
