What is sexual harassment?
Harassment (typically of a woman) in a workplace, or in any other professional or social situation, involving the making of unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks.
Hopefully most churches would never be forced to use this policy but in
some expected circumstances it might happen and you need a policy in
place if it ever does. Always have your employees read and sign this
policy before starting their first day. Insert the signed copy of the
policy in their personnel file.
The policy below for sexual harassment includes:
- Church Name
