Sexual Harassment Policies

Under Massachusetts law, all businesses must adopt a Sexual Harassment Policy, outlining prohibited conduct in the workplace and providing details on complaint and reporting procedures to address misconduct.

A business’ sexual harassment policy must be distributed annually to all employees and should be posted in a visible area in the office. Businesses should consider having each employee sign an acknowledgment and receipt and saving the same in each employee’s personnel records, or distributing the policy through means by which the company can track and confirm delivery, i.e., sending the same via e-mail to an address that the employee acknowledges and checks on a consistent basis. Records of such delivery should be kept in the personnel records for each employee.
