“The NFL sent a workplace conduct update to its teams Wednesday in which Commissioner Roger Goodell emphasizes the effect improper behavior can have on others,” The Associated Press reported. “The memo is a reminder of the league’s belief that ‘all employees and associates of the NFL have the right to work in a positive environment’ free from all forms of harassment, intimidation and discrimination.”
The memo outlines the NFL’s objectives, including:
-Providing a clear definition of sexual harassment and detailed examples of illegal and inappropriate behavior.
-Ensuring that each member of the NFL fully understands that sexual harassment and discrimination are against the law.
-Seeking to build league-wide awareness of the NFL’s policies regarding sexual harassment and other discrimination.
-Providing clear and acceptable workplace behavior guidelines for all NFL employees.
-Explaining how, when and where to report sexual harassment.
