I am aware of the employment at will; however, the organization (Coca Cola) has failed to train these employees on sexual harassment training. I understand that the State of California mandates corporations to conduct sexual harassment training once every two years. I am not really sure. At the same time the individual has been known for reporting sexual harassment claims on other employees within the company. Basically, isn't the claim of one person be consider defamation of character? Although, I understand the consequences I just feel it is unfair to be punish for something the organization has failed to incorporate. In my company (ManTech) there is zero tolerance for such behavior but every employee has mandatory sexual harassment training to aware of the repercussion. Please advise. Thanks.
