Building a Safer Workplace for HR

About the Class

Workplace and sexual harassment is a serious issue, one which no organization should take lightly. A harassment claim is financially costly, bad for morale, and damaging to hard-won reputations. Workplace and sexual harassment training programs can protect your organization from such disastrous consequences while fostering a positive work environment that’s free from harassment and discrimination based on gender, race, disability, or any other protected category.

The US Supreme Court has stated that for a company to reduce its liability for harassment claims, it must train employees and supervisors, require employees to report incidents of harassment, thoroughly investigate all reports, and take corrective action when necessary. Workplace and sexual harassment training are therefore necessary for an affirmative defense.

This one-day program will focus on the development of effective measures to prevent harassment, to investigate charges and complaints of harassment and to develop disciplinary procedures and processes to deal with those who have harassed.

Program Topics

  • Develop an anti-harassment policy.
  • Communicate the policy to all employees
  • Make sure that all managers and supervisors understand their responsibility to provide a harassment-free work environment.
  • Ensure that all employees understand the policy and procedures for dealing with harassment - new and long-term employees alike - this involves training, information and education.
  • Show you mean it - make sure the policy applies to everyone, including managers and supervisors.
  • Promptly investigate and deal with all complaints of harassment.
  • Appropriately discipline employees who harass other employees.
  • Provide protection and support for the employees who feel they are being harassed.
