In order to protect the integrity of the harassment and sexual harassment invetsigative process, we strongly discourage all Pyramid Security Group employees from making false claims. A false harassment or sexual harassment claim makes a mockery of how serious this issue is and takes away time and resources that should be dedicated to actual cases of  harassment or sexual harassment. Any Pyramid Security Group employee found to have made false harassment or sexual harrassment claim would have their employemnt terminated immediately. If the false claims are egregious, Pyramid Security Group reserves the right to take appropriate legal action against the employe that mad the false claim.
