Numerous reasons exist for businesses to have a comprehensive and well-monitored sexual-harassment policy. The first, and most self-interested, reason is that creating a strong program will significantly reduce the potential for and extent of liability for incidents of sexual harassment. Second, such a policy is likely to lead to a decrease in harassment, which will save a company considerable time, money, and effort and reduce the likelihood that the company's image/credibility will be damaged if incidents do occur. Third, as parties interested in creating a positive working environment, employers have reason to actively support such a policy. Finally, as moral agents, companies should support these efforts as part of their concern about the integrity of their companies and the well-being of their employees.
