Description:

Workplace Harassment: How To Address Complaints, Avoid Legal Catastrophes, And Create A Safe Work Environment

Preventing workplace harassment is a top priority for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which means it should be a top priority for you, too.

This year alone, the agency has already achieved several settlements relating to workplace harassment in jaw-dropping amounts up to $1.02 million. Note that “Workplace harassment” can extend far beyond “sexual harassment.” An EEOC task force has identified a “wide range of bases of harassment” that exist in today’s workplace—including age, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity harassment.

Establishing an anti-harassment policy is simply not enough. HR must be proactive about training for both supervisors and employees, responding promptly to allegations of harassment, and conducting thorough investigations.

Join us when James Douglass, an attorney with Fisher & Phillips, will examine how to establish a harassment-free workplace environment, respond promptly to complaints, and avoid catastrophic legal pitfalls.

Learning Objectives

  • The legal definition of harassment
  • How “quid pro quo” differs from “hostile work environment”, and why this distinction matters
  • The different types of workplace harassment, including sexual, religious, racial, disability, age, and more
  • In what circumstances an employer may be deemed negligent
    What can happen if the harasser is a coworker and the employer didn’t know about the harassment
  • Legal issues you’re likely to face if the harasser is a supervisor
  • What constitutes a “tangible employment action”
  • How to protect your organization against liability by providing reasonable solutions for employees who complain of harassment
  • The keys to avoiding retaliation complaints resulting from workplace harassment
  • Why the EEOC wants you to use social media and other digital tools to create a harassment-free workplace

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.

The live 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.
