This seminar provides an overview of federal and state civil rights laws. Now more than ever, employers must ensure that effective anti-harassment policies are in place. Supervisors must be trained to act as role models, to recognize harassment in the workplace, and to respond promptly and appropriately. Employers must also institute effective complaint procedures that are readily accessible to employees and that ensure prompt investigation of harassment complaints without retaliation.
Specific topics will include:
Overview of federal and Oregon civil rights protected classes
Definition of unlawful harassment
How courts and BOLI define unlawful harassment
Recent cases and new laws, including Workplace Fairness Act
Defining unwelcome conduct
Communicating the company harassment policy
Taking appropriate corrective action
The seminar is targeted toward human resources personnel, business owners, managers, and front line supervisors with responsibility to understand and recognize workplace harassment.
