Xmas Party Time – Be Careful!

ACAS Guidelines say: Sexual harassment can happen to men, women and people of any gender identity or sexual orientation. It can be carried out by anyone of the same sex, a different sex or anyone of any gender identity.

You could experience sexual harassment from anyone you come into contact with because of your job, including:

  • someone you work with
  • a manager, supervisor or someone else in a position of authority
  • someone high profile or influential

You can also experience sexual harassment from a customer, client or member of the public. An employer should take steps to prevent this. Christmas and New Year parties can open the door to all kinds of difficulties, although of course it applies to all times of the year Please click hear for the full ACAS Guide
