Sexual harassment and discrimination are not issues that should be taken lightly. It is imperative that all employees with supervisory functions know and understand the law. This course discusses the important elements of carefully and correctly handling sexual harassment issues and complaints. We will review the legal definitions of sexual harassment and employment discrimination; learn how to appropriately handle sexual harassment complaints, discuss the negative impact of abusive conduct in the workplace and management’s legal obligations when it comes to dealing with these issues. Using case studies and group discussions, this AB-1825 and AB-2053 compliant workshop explores the consequences of sexual harassment on the individual and the organization.
Who Should Attend?
California state law mandates that employees who perform supervisory functions in a company with 50 or more employees participate in sexual harassment training within six (6) months of taking the position and every two (2) years thereafter. Even if you don’t have 50 employees or do business in California, training is important. Every company needs supervisors who know the law.
