Alderman Zielinski calls for city employees to undergo sexual harassment training
"Everyone deserves a respectful and safe workplace."
Alderman Tony Zielinski is introducing a resolution that would direct the Director of the Department of Employee Relations to create a policy to put city employees through sexual harassment training.
After many national reports of sexual harassment and assault, Ald. Zielinski says he wants to ensure that city employees are trained on appropriate conduct in the workplace.
Ald. Zielinski says, “Everyone deserves a respectful and safe workplace. This is a common sense resolution that will ensure our high standards are reflected with each employee’s behavior.”
The draft will follow national standards. The proposal is expected to be heard by the Finance and Personnel Committee on December 13.
