Way to protect against gropers

Recent claims about men who grope are also largely claims about men who abuse power. Organisations should protect themselves against this by formulating and publishing their policy regarding such behaviour.

The policy should identify who would deal with the complaints and should also be made clear that the policy has the full backing of top management.

The employer I worked for had such a policy for the past 30 years. I felt that it worked well. Although I was aware of two senior managers who were sacked for inappropriate conduct, there was no great publicity.

It should be seen as a dereliction of responsibility not to set out such a policy.
