About this Course
This course will provide employers and managers with relevant and useful information on employee rights in the workplace. Managers are directly responsible for maintaining a respectful and professional workplace environment. Covering pertinent federal laws on job discrimination and explaining how to establish a company anti-discrimination policy, the course prepares managers and employers for the responsibilities associated with preventing discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Specifically designated for workplace employers, it is also ideal for small business owners, individual supervisors, and corporate enterprise-wide implementation.
The next portion of this course addresses the impact of sexual harassment in the workplace. Because sexual harassment consists of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances or sexual conduct that has the effect of unreasonably interfering with a person's work performance, this type of behavior can create an intimidating or hostile work environ-ment. The goal of eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace must begin with prevention. This course will help you identify situations and behaviors that could be perceived as harassment, understand a supervisor's obligations and responsibilities to create and maintain a harassment-free work environment, apply specific strategies for preventing and eliminating sexual harassment and appropriately responding to allegations of sexual harassment.
We will also examine discriminatory hiring and firing practices and discrimination against Americans with disabilities before looking at the implementation of open door policies and the problem of bullying in the workplace.
