Description

You know you're not going to harass anyone, but you might be  somewhat fearful of being accused of doing so and want to know where the lines are. You also need to know what to do if you learn about a possible incident of harassment.

This course introduces participants to the two kinds of illegal workplace harassment, the classes of people who are protected, and effective prevention strategies. It reviews the emotional turmoil, physical illness, indirect financial costs, and litigation risks that damage unprotected organizations. The training summarizes what organizations must do to comply with state and federal harassment prevention laws. It explains what all employees should do if they become targets and what managers and supervisors must do if they learn of an incident of possible harassment.


Who this course is for:
  • Managers, supervisors, executives, board members, and anyone else who can affect the employment conditions of employees.
