Preventing Harassment, Discrimination, Abuse and Bullying: Management’s Responsibility in 2020 and Beyond
October 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT$159 – $199
This comprehensive course is designed to not only teach managers and supervisors their responsibilities in preventing sexual harassment, discrimination, abuse, bullying, teasing, exploitation, and other inappropriate behaviors, it also provides the training necessary in these areas.
The laws have recently changed in California. We expect other states to follow shortly. If you have five (5) or more employees you must train them prior to January 1, 2020 and continue to train them thereafter. The laws are now also requiring much more responsibility of people in positions of power.
We discuss the most recent federal government regulations, as well as provide a brief history of the development of these workplace protections. We also discuss in detail California’s requirements in preventing harassment, abusive behavior, bullying and discrimination.
California is usually among the states providing the most stringent protections – and other states usually follow these examples. Although we do not cover the requirements in each and every state in this course, we believe that by following the combination of federal and California State laws, plus our recommendations to be even more prudent, you will be in compliance.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
- Discover the laws governing workplace protections from harassment, bullying and discrimination in the workplace.
- Identify the specific requirements of the number of employees and what constitutes an employee under the law for this purpose and how often you need to offer the training.
- Explore the many examples of behaviors that need to be analyzed and make your own decisions regarding them.
- Identify things such as adverse treatment and adverse impact.
- Discover types of harassment, bullying and discrimination and what you can and cannot allow in the workplace.
- Recognize the more subtle forms of harassment, bullying and discrimination ( such as hostile work environment and third party harassment) and learn how to respond to them.
- Identify ways to investigate, sanction and offer remedies stopping all inappropriate behaviors.
We cover the laws and examples of abuse, bullying, discrimination, harassment (sexual and otherwise) and the rights of the victim. Finally, we offer information about handling complaints including how to treat the accused and possible remedies for the victim.
Many examples of behaviors that could be construed as either appropriate or inappropriate – depending on the point of view of those involved will be offered as well as examples of clear inappropriate behaviors. In addition to harassment and discrimination we define and discuss abusive behaviors – bullying, teasing, exploitation.
We not only discuss these in detail but also help you understand the nuances and protections for people who gender identify differently from what is specified on their birth certificate.
This course is mandatory for managers and supervisors in companies having 50 or 15 or more employees. In California it has now changed to five (5) or more and other states will follow. The definition of employee has been greatly enlarged to include contractors, part-time workers, and some others. Training of supervisors and managers is required at least every two years.
Thus, it is strongly recommended that you provide training to all employees at least annually no matter how many you consider your head count. It only takes two people to have a behavior reported as either sexual harassment, bullying, or discrimination.
