Just over 30 years ago, it was determined that harassment was a form of discrimination in violation of federal law. Unfortunately, 3 decades later, harassment is still rampant in organizations. With all that we’ve been doing, it’s still missing the mark. Sexual harassment is in headlines constantly now, but it’s not the only type of harassment issue – don’t forget about race, color, religion, national origin, disability, pregnancy, age, military, and so on.

We now know that focusing more on legal compliance than on respect doesn’t eradicate harassment. Culture matters! We certainly need laws in place, but to be effective, they must be underpinned by a healthy culture of respect.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • What the EEOC is expecting of employers NOW to show that you’re taking your harassment prevention efforts seriously.
  • The four checklists the EEOC has created for employers to follow: Leadership and Accountability, An Anti-Harassment Policy, A Harassment Reporting System and Investigations, and Compliance Training.
  • Ways to build into your program two new concepts proposed by the EEOC: Civility Training and Bystander Intervention Training.
