What is bullying – and would you know what to do if you suspect that one of your co-workers or employees is being bullied?
It seems that there are news stories every day that highlight some form of bullying. But does every bullying complaint require an investigation, or should they be handled informally? Further, how do you know which approach is required and, if sued, can you prove you've been properly trained to make such a decision?
This training suite - delivered in on-demand format - covers how to identify bullying, what to do if you suspect that someone is being bullied, and the policies needed to help protect your organization from claims of bullying and harassment.
It also covers the investigation process, which is perhaps the most critical element in dealing with claims of bullying and harassment, as cases that have gone to court typically do so because the employee feels that there was no - or an inadequate - investigation.
By attending this informative training session, you and your team also will be able to:
