Harassment Potential Indicator

We use a general definition of harassment that is broader than most legal or human rights frameworks. This questionnaire assesses an organization's ability to manage employee behavior and to provide legitimate avenues for the use of supervisory influence and other forms of power in the workplace. This includes appropriate patterns of gender and race relations. While there is a range of what may be considered "appropriate" there are limits beyond which behaviors are inappropriate or unwelcome. Organizations must develop the principles, systems and skills to manage employee behavior and their use of influence: if this is not done properly there is a relatively high potential for harassment complaints.
