Learn how to effectively address harassment in your workplace. 

Recent focus on sexual harassment in media, entertainment and government is bringing a new wave of sexual harassment lawsuits against employers of all types. Go beyond the basics and learn how to write an effective policy against harassment. Train managers and supervisors to avoid seemingly innocent situations that often lead to harassment claims. Respond effectively to complaints so that you can prevent them from becoming lawsuits.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to make it easier for employees to complain internally about harassment, so they don’t go to lawyers and government agencies.
  • How to make your AB 1825 training more effective by identifying the types of poor judgment that often result in accusations of harassment against managers.
  • How to determine the appropriate penalty for an employee who violates your anti-harassment policy.
