Netflix has rolled out a new rule which relates to sexual harassment and the companies policies. Employees of Netflix were advised that the company has amended it's sexual harassment policies to include a "5 second rule for staring".
Additionally, they amended their anti-harassment policies to include banned behaviors such as:
asking for a co-workers phone numbers
lingering hugs and touching
asking co-workers on a date
Each company will have their own opinions on their anti-harassment policies. What is most important is that everyone should understand their company policies as they relate to sexual harassment.
We advise all parties to review their handbook to make sure their policies are up to date and they understand expectations.
