Preventing Workplace Harassment
Sexual and other harassment due to protected classes, such as gender, race, and age continue to hurt organizations. This illegal conduct leaves emotional and psychological scars on targeted employees. It also hurts overall team morale, productivity, collaboration, and other important objectives for a constructive workplace. Even perpetrators may not appreciate the risks they take when engaging in this conduct. A workplace that allows, and even encourages, this improper conduct cannot promote respect for all employees to obtain their best performance. This scenario led training offers strategies for preventing unlawful harassment and helps managers understand how to respond appropriately when they learn of it. It also addresses the risk of liability to both the business and a manager if he or she fails to stop harassment or personally engages in harassing behavior.
