Harassment Education

Principles and Prevention (Compliance Course)
It is every organization’s responsibility to actively work to reduce their exposure to sexual harassment incidents through aggressive education for all employees. This essential workshop focuses on gaining knowledge and heightening awareness on ways to prevent sexual harassment specifically and harassment in general. The creation of a more positive, productive work environment depends on workers feeling comfortable in their surroundings. Sexual harassment is a huge problem in today's workforce, with organizational leadership oftentimes unaware of this very serious problem. While it can be a sensitive topic, not addressing it forthrightly and proactively opens the door to not only potentially expensive legal implications but an unmotivated workforce—both of which impact your bottom line. Sexual harassment can and does impact each and every employee in the organization. It takes but a seemingly harmless statement, stare or gesture and the company can find itself involved in lengthy and very costly litigation. In this workshop participants will:

  • Gain a general understanding, including federal and state laws, regarding sexual harassment and the often severe consequences of not following those laws.
  • Learn how and why sexual harassment impacts an organization.
  • Learn facts and statistics on sexual harassment—why it occurs; who it affects.
  • Learn how to identify whether an incident of sexual harassment has occurred—you may be very surprised.
  • Recognize victims of sexual harassment, including oneself, and how to handle these serious situations.
  • Learn methods for preventing sexual harassment and how to respond if it happens to you.
  • Apply all information to other protected classes.
