Managing in a diverse workplace can be a daunting task. One thing a manager needs to keep in mind is that it is her/her responsibility to maintain a harassment-free workplace!

While sexual harassment gets most of the media attention, other forms of workplace harassment are just as prevalent and can be just as detrimental. Although diversity in a work group should be celebrated, it carries a very high potential for harassment. Different nationalities, cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs, ages and physical abilities or disabilities are all reasons behind workplace discrimination and harassment. However, they are all categories that are protected under the law.

Any workplace that has a high diversity of employees also has a high risk of harassment. The makeup of the group might cause tension and difficult interactions. An all-too-common situation, and one that is dramatized in this story, is where this tension grows from "just kidding around" into illegal harassment. At all times, the video explains, your company must have a zero-tolerance harassment policy that protects each employee.

Courtesy and mutual respect must be the dominant attitude in the workplace. To work in an environment free of hostility is a right of each employee that is protected under the law. Bruce Sarchet, an employment law attorney at Littler Mendelson PC, a National Employment and Labor Law Firm® and our professional narrator, guides managers in the necessary steps to resolve harassment problems; thereby protecting both the employees and the company.
