Civility At Work: Build A Legally Enforceable Culture Of Respect

Format: Webinar

Description:

Do your employees respect one another, your clients, your customers, the public? As little as one rogue tweet on Twitter, a scathing email, or a heated water-cooler discussion could ignite a firestorm that sparks legal concerns and reputational harm for your organization.

The executive summary of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s 2016 Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace report states that “effective harassment prevention efforts and [a] workplace culture in which harassment is not tolerated, must start with and involve the highest level of management of the company.” In addition, organizations should “have systems in place that hold employees accountable for this expectation.”

Establishing a culture of civility and respect may seem like a no-brainer, but there are increasingly difficult questions for employers to answer on how to handle social media and other speech that could impact employees and the company’s reputation. For instance, the ubiquitous nature of social media spills over into everyday life, and that means rude, disrespectful comments can surface at the water cooler and throughout the workday, making the workplace culture tense and, possibly, unbearable for some workers.

So, what steps can employers take when their workers are disrespectful and ignore company policies on respect and workplace civility?

And, what are the rules about creating such policies?

Employers need to ensure that, though they want to establish guidelines for civility in the workplace, they don’t run afoul of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rules and laws protecting free speech.

Join us for a webinar on civility and respect in the workplace that will illustrate the legal steps employers may take and the legal limits of controlling employees’ speech and maintaining civility in the workplace.

You’ll learn:

  • How to legally draw “a line in the sand” when it comes to civility and respect in the workplace
  • Proactive steps for minimizing claims of incivility, harassment or discrimination in your workplace
  • Pointers on how to foster a culture of respect, inclusiveness, and civility
  • What to do if someone complains about disrespect or rude behavior in your workplace
  • The limits of protected speech in the workplace
  • Examples of employment brands that were tarnished when employees “went rogue” by writing decisive tweets, Facebook posts, and other social media content
  • What employers—both public and private—can legally do to monitor and control employee speech, both live and online
  • How to avoid civility policies that could run afoul to NLRB rules and unlawfully seek to limit free speech
  • The NLRB’s current and anticipated rules on social media usage at work—and the practical impact on workplace policies covering what employees can and can't say on social media
  • Legal steps for handling a situation where an employee crosses the line and acts disrespectfully using social media
  • Proactive steps for creating a positive workplace culture where employees thrive, limiting your chances of having to deal with these problems in the first place
BONUS: Plus, you’ll get a handy culture assessment tool for examining whether your workplace breeds bullying or supports other negative behaviors that you should address.
