|Order:||Qty: Select State: |
Religious expression has increased significantly in the workplace.
At the same time, an emphasis on diversity in the workplace has expanded from recruiting efforts designed to ensure equal opportunity to efforts focused on policy making and marketing tools which emphasize the views and practices of employees are supported and respected by others.
This audio conference will help to ensure that you balance these competing demands with respect to issues of religious accommodation and religious discrimination in the workplace.
You will gain practical guidance on how to assure their diversity programs and religious policies comply with the current federal and state anti-discrimination laws.
You also will learn how to balance employees' right to self expression with the legitimate goals of controlling attendance, solicitation, and distribution at work, plus how to address unwanted proselytizing and still avoid charges of religious discrimination.
Last, it is helful for implementing preventative measures to avoid costly claims and litigation.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
