RECOMMENDED FOR EMPLOYEES!
Harassment represents one of the most destructive workplace issues faced by public and private employers today. In addition to sexual harassment, there are liability issues based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, age and others. Harassment can manifest in jokes, negative stereotyping, hostile acts or simple thoughtless comments, but the ultimate outcome is the same: legal liability, profound emotional stress, lower employee morale and reduced productivity.
The purpose of this training is to educate employees on the definition of discrimination and harassment under the law and the rights and responsibilities of employees and management, give examples of behavior that constitutes harassment and provide guidelines to address and prevent harassment and discrimination.
