Recognizing and Disrupting Workplace Discrimination

February 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The purpose of this course is to educate employees on the definition of discrimination and harassment under the law. The course also provides an overview of the rights and responsibilities of employees and management, by providing examples of behavior that constitutes harassment as well as providing prevention guidelines. Harassment rooted in bias represents one of the most destructive workplace issues faced by public and private employers today. Discrimination, the act of prejudicial treatment based on race, color, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, gender, disability, age among others, can create workplace liability. Harassment can manifest in jokes, negative stereotyping, hostile acts or simple thoughtless comments. The ultimate outcome is the same: legal liability, profound emotional stress, lower employee morale and reduced productivity.
