Workplace Harassment & Discrimination Prevention - HR RoundtableAdd to Calendar
Few topics have dominated the headlines the last few months like workplace harassment. Yet, for every one story that is reported, countless instances remain unreported.
Today’s workplace is a melting pot of cultures, religions and abilities. It's important to know what forms harassment and discrimination can take, so that your business can avoid a costly and time-consuming claim. What’s the definition of harassment? What laws protect employees from discrimination in the workplace?
Join us on Tuesday, January 23, as we learn the policies and procedures you should implement in order to keep a harassment or discrimination claim at bay.
This presentation is also available via our WEBINAR capability. If interested in attending via GoToMeeting, please register here.
