If an employee believes they experienced or witnessed harassment, they can submit a report in four steps. Once submitted, HR and the reporter will have equal visibility into the process until a resolution is reached.
Reports follow an escalation path designated by HR. Encourage timely resolutions within your HR team. If a report isn’t resolved in a predetermined amount of time, it is automatically escalated to a more senior member on the path. Unacknowledged or unresolved reports escalate to the appropriate city, state, and federal agencies.
Resolution and Closure
Resolution happens when both the victim and company agree that the matter has been resolved, giving both the victim and company closure.
