A member asked the following question about how to handle a situation where a customer is harassing a manager. Read on for guidance on how to handle these sensitive situations.


During the course of our sexual harassment prevention training with our managers and supervisors, a question came up that I was unable to answer.

This removes the employee from the situation.


If it is late at night and it is just the Shift Manager and another employee working, and a customer is sexually harassing the Shift Manager, what should the manager do? I know our company has an obligation to protect the Shift Manager from that kind of sexual harassment but how can we handle it?
