Employment Discrimination

Syntrio’s online discrimination training course suite instructs managers and supervisors the importance of making fair and consistent employment decisions in accordance with the law. Our employment discrimination training courses promote respect, and in turn, decrease the likelihood that your company will face a charge of discrimination.

You may be asking why it is necessary to add an employment discrimination training course when you already provide your employees with sexual harassment training and workplace harassment training? The truth is discrimination unfairly denies victims equal opportunities at work, and impedes productivity. Just as important, failing to provide employees with online employment discrimination training can open up the company to costly litigation and can eliminate a critical defense to an employment discrimination lawsuit.

Syntrio believes that ensuring your managers and supervisors have the proper employment discrimination training and understand their responsibilities under the law and company policy is critical to preventing discriminatory actions, and thereby costly lawsuits and administrative investigations.
