Overview : This webinar will concentrate on what is considered sexual harassment as well as covering other types of harassment in the workplace. It will review the laws protecting employees from harassment and the recourses employees have.

It will define who is covered and describe the two main kinds of sexual harassment in the workplace. It will cover what should be in an effective Harassment policy, how it should be communicated, and who is held responsible for assuring compliance. Also included is handling complaints, documenting charges and conduct and addressing any situation that may be construed as harassment. It will also describe liability for the company and/or its supervisors. It will discuss the rights of the employee and how important it is to have a no retaliation policy to protect employees who make a charge or claim. There will be examples of situations and whether they are covered under the law and what defenses might be viable. It will also give the advantages for all concerned of having a harassment-free environment at work.

Why should you attend: Harassment that may occur and complaints that are not resolved can lead to very serious and costly consequences. All human resource professionals, supervisors and all levels of management need to be aware of the liabilities involved with not addressing harassment in the workplace seriously and not having a policy and procedure that protects the company as well as the employee.
