You're a junior underwriter at HWCK Insurance Company. The company has over 20,000 employees, and you began working there just ten months ago. Sexual harassment training was an element of your new employee orientation. Your boss, the life underwriting manager, has always been nice to you, but lately has begun complimenting your appearance in ways that you feel are inappropriate. When your boss asks you out on a date and says that you should accept in order to get a promotion and raise, you will need to take action to deal with the situation. This simulation is based on the SkillSoft courses: "Employee Sexual Harassment Awareness" (lch_01_a01_lc_enus) and "Supervisor and Manager Sexual Harassment Awareness" (lch_01_a02_lc_enus). Note that the intent of this simulation is to illustrate ways of responding to sexually harassing behavior. The types of responses the simulation presents are not intended to apply to all situations. Other responses may be as appropriate or effective, or more so, in particular situations. Individual employees will need to decide, on the basis of their own specific circumstances, how best to respond. Employees who are uncertain how to proceed in a particular situation should consider seeking help from a company human resources representative, an ombudsperson, an employee assistance program counselor, a friend, or another resource.
