Workplace Professionalism (Harassment Learning Program)

Next Date:September 12, 201910:00 am - 1:00 pm

Harassment occurs when someone is subjected to unwanted sexual advances, petitioned for sexual favors, or physically / verbally abused.

Harassment doesn’t have to be of a sexual nature – it can include offensive remarks about a person’s gender. For example, anyone could be guilty of harassing another if offensive comments are made about certain group in general. Simple teasing or offhand comments might not be illegal, but harassment is illegal when it creates a hostile or offensive work environment.

This workshop teaches how to recognize, understand, and respond to harassment so that you can help to maintain a happy work environment, free from hostility and discomfort.

Topics:

  • Harassment Laws: The definition of sexual harassment and quid pro quo.
  • Types of Harassment: Verbal, Non-Verbal, Physical, Psychological (teasing and offhand comments).
  • Creating a happy work environment free from hostility and discomfort.
  • Reporting: What to do when employees witness or experience harassment.
  • Responding: How managers can identify and respond to prohibited conduct.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the signs of Harassment and take steps to prevent it,
  • Follow a legal and ethical protocol in responding and reporting it when it is perceived to occur,
  • Involve the correct individuals in being made aware of the occurrence, and
