heat heats up sexual harrassment complaints in ArkansasJuly in Arkansas is hot.  As the days get longer and ties get loosened, employers find themselves responding to more complaints of sexual harassment. The good news for business owners and HR professionals is that it is much easier to handle an harassment complaint then, say, a wage and hour class action.  

The law requires an employer who receives an harassment complaint to perform a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation and to stop the harassing behavior. Everything gets a little trickier if a supervisor is accused, but in many cases, an harassment complaint can be put to rest with an investigation and appropriate disciplinary action.  To help ease your summer workload, here's a round-up of solid investigation and harassment policy advice.  Take care of that complaint today, and get out to the lake!

Happy to include you in the list - I think you're right that sorting out employee privacy rights regarding electronic messages is going to be an increasingly important issue.
