Course Description

The past several years have caused many to examine their behaviors and attitudes regarding many social issues. While many employers have anti-harassment policies in place and comply with training requirements, there has still not been a societal shift which has rendered all workplaces free from behaviors and speech that exemplifies harassment. In addition, many employers do not have appropriate policies and procedures in place which adequately address the behavior as it arises. This CPE webinar is designed to help a better understanding of behaviors and speech that exemplify harassment, and will help align behaviors with organizational values to promote a safe and respectful work environment for all.

In this practical CPE webinar, you will learn how to craft a handbook of employee policies and procedures that will protect the rights of you and your employees.
