MiamiHerald / This week’s question to South Florida CEOs who are on the Miami Herald CEO Roundtable: How does your company deal with allegations of sexual harassment?
Fortunately, since the organization’s inception in 1999, GHETC has not had any incidents of sexual harassment. Should a sexual harassment allegation occur, the executive director and our board would follow GHETC’s sexual harassment reporting protocols. This practice includes immediately separating the offending individual from the victim, developing an incident report that results in a thorough investigation of the claimant’s allegations, and completing an administrative leave checklist that based upon the results of the investigation could lead to the offending party being permanently discharged from his duties with our organization.
