ARE YOU CONDUCTING HARASSMENT & DISCRIMINATION TRAINING?
If your organization is not already conducting harassment and discrimination training covering all of the protected areas under Title VII or state law, you are leaving the organization wide open to lawsuits involving claims of race, national origin, age, sex, religious, or disability discrimination and potential punitive damages for showing a "reckless disregard" of the law.
Even in a slower economy, it's more cost effective to conduct discrimination and harassment training today than to pay the cost of having to settle claims or defend lawsuits tomorrow. A recent study found that the state of Washington experienced a 37% decline in employment law-related claims after implementing a training program.
Don't make the mistake of only conducting sexual harassment training for your supervisors. Sexual harassment charges constitute less than 15% of all claims received by the EEOC. To reduce your potential liability, you need to conduct training on other forms of discrimination.
AHI offers you three different ways to train to best suit your preferences and budget (click on any button to learn more).
Our training course covers all discrimination topics to give you the best legal protection.
AHI's Preventing Workplace Harassment and Discrimination training course teaches your supervisors what they need to know to avoid discrimination and harassment lawsuits based on race, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or retaliation. They will learn how to:
Identify what is and what is not permitted when faced with religious accommodation requests.
Avoid disability discrimination claims when dealing with potential conflicts between performance standards and disability accommodation requests.
Analyze hypothetical workplace discrimination scenarios based on actual court cases that have tripped up supervisors in the past.
Identify potential sex stereotyping situations.
Properly respond to complaints to avoid potential retaliation claims.
Whether you use live webinars, online web-based training, or in-house classes, your supervisors will be much better at eliminating any potential discrimination claims after completing the course.
A fourth training option.
If you have an internal trainer who you can use to lead your harassment and discrimination training classes, then you can use AHI's Preventing Workplace Harassment & Discrimination CD Presentation Kit.

- Detailed Leader's Guide
