NEW LEGAL LIABILITIES FOR EMPLOYERS TO PREVENT SEXUAL HARASSMENT WITHIN THE WORKPLACE.

A Specialist Solution for Businesses, Organisations, Academic and Medical Institutions

stopsexualmisconduct.co.uk, only trades with organisations, not private individuals, our specialist, highly-skilled team has the expertise to promote the safety and wellbeing of the workforce in all organisations and institutions.

The law and procedure relating to sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and sexual offences are notoriously complex. They are often misunderstood and can provoke extreme anxiety for all parties involved. Nevertheless, the fact that they occur in the workplace, adds greater complexity and uncertainty. 

Regularly, we read about someone who has made an allegation, or someone who has been accused of some form of sexual misconduct. Yet, except in the more obvious cases, people are unsure of where offensive or inappropriate behaviour ends and what constitutes as sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sexual assault: we are operating in a maze. 

It is time for more clarity and direction. This is why stopsexualmisconduct.co.uk has risen to the challenge of actively promoting values of respect and appropriate behaviour within the workplace. 

As more people are speaking out and beginning to question this complex matter, many are concerned and unsure of how to tackle the issue, and they struggle to manage it effectively which often leads to an inappropriate defensive response. 

Within an organisation or institution, a single allegation can immediately raise difficult and complex questions about the future of the employment relationship, criminal liability and regulatory responsibilities. Furthermore, if the process is mishandled, it can expose an employer to legal risk and serious reputational damage. It can also lead to a victim suffering from a range of mental, emotional and physical health issues, and this can result in lower productivity, absenteeism, an increase in employee turnover, and legal costs. For an accused employee, the allegation may be sufficient to cause significant and lasting career, as well as reputational, damage.

Sexual misconduct allegations can range from sex and sexual harassment to workplace relationships with an imbalance of power or status, and issues of consent.

Reporting a sexual misconduct allegation, requires the courage and persistence of victims who deserve the best support and advice that is available. Reporting on behalf of someone, or coercing them to report an allegation, can risk causing destructive emotional trauma, a loss of evidence, or angry repercussions if the process is not as they expected.

Alternatively, a belief that if anything untoward has happened ‘it should be reported,’ can cause people to lessen what the impact has been on the victim, and sometimes there is no understanding of the process or pitfalls involved. As a result, there is a complete lack of support and advice for the victim. In this scenario, reporting may become less likely, the allegation is unchallenged, and the alleged perpetrator believes that their sense of entitlement was well-founded.

The destructive and distracting effects of discrimination, harassment, and undermining behaviour are amplified by a sexual context. Understanding and supporting allegations of sexual misconduct is essential for the wellbeing and safety of colleagues and for the organisation or institution to maintain a high-quality reputation.

At stopsexualmisconduct.co.uk, we offer specialist and unique consultancy, awareness training, and investigatory services that will support your organisation or industry in preventing sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. So why not contact us today to discuss how we can help?

Our Ethos

We have built our firm on the ethos that we will act ethically, fairly and in a socially responsible way with regards to our clients, workforce, and the wider community to ensure meaningful and respectful communication.

As part of this commitment:

  • We are prepared to take the financial risk of pursuing difficult and challenging test cases that help to preserve and promote the rights of sexual abuse sufferers and innocent parties.
  • We promote and preserve the broader rights of sexual misconduct sufferers. Our consultants actively support local and national organisations that assist sexual abuse sufferers in the legal, social, health and research fields.
  • We will not act in a way that could undermine the rights of sexual abuse sufferers.

Our relationship with our clients will not end with the conclusion of the service that we provided. Our consultants will always be available to support our clients if they want us. 

We will strive to assist anyone, not just our clients, who contacts us with concerns about sexual abuse (whether it happened in the past or is currently happening). We are able to discuss their legal rights, provide advice or offer further options. 

We take our obligations seriously and act professionally in the way that we operate and conduct ourselves. We have equally the same passion about protecting and defending our team against verbal abuse, harassment and false allegations made by anyone. Occasionally, we may anger individuals by not doing what they wanted, or by stopping a case when the evidence has supported that they were truly guilty. There are some people who have issues that cause them to be displeased no matter what is done; they can become angry and hit out at everyone. Under those circumstances, they may seek to push the blame towards a visible target as a way of dealing with their anguish. It is part of the complex territory that we are dealing with, and we accept it. Our ethos is to work with compassion and empathy in our endeavours to maximise your ability to successfully achieve the ambition of eradicating sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.
