Webinar Opportunity: Prevent Discrimination and Harassment

This year, over 25,000 harassment complaints were filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) — could you be one of them?

The EEOC and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) enforce laws that make it illegal to discriminate against job applicants and employees. Employers who fail to comply with these laws are at risk of financial losses and negative brand exposure.

Studies show how harassment, bullying and a hostile workplace affect productivity, morale and service. Employees who experience these behaviors in the workplace struggle with motivation and their ability to focus on their tasks, which can lead to higher turnover, workplace injuries and increased absenteeism.

Western Growers University (WGU) has designed a course that addresses both the legal requirements outlined by the EEOC and the DFEH and added techniques to create a more inclusive environment.

Employees have rights, but they also have responsibilities to report improper behavior when they see it. It’s time to equip your managers with a new approach to address and deal with misconduct when it is reported.
