Course Overview

Online Harassment Training for Employees 

In 2012 alone, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ordered that $365,400,000 (that’s 365.4 million dollars!) be paid out for discrimination and harassment charges. No wonder companies are working to be more proactive in preventing harassment. But how do you prevent harassment from occurring? What sorts of policies should be in place? What should managers do to protect their employees? And if a complaint is filed, what will we do? All of these questions (and more!) will be answered in this online harassment training for employees.

Just because workplace harassment is comparatively rare does not mean you can afford to overlook it.  Whether you currently work in management or intend to pursue a management position, you must be able to identify and deal with even the subtlest signs of harassment.  The only way to successfully deal with harassment in the workplace is to prevent it at all costs.  Managers who are able to successfully eliminate such problems from the workplace are those who become recognized for their professionalism – not to mention their potential for bigger and better things.
