Harassment and Hostility at Work: Detect It and Fix It For Good

Harassment Claim

Workplaces have become more hostile in recent years. Teleworkers may be targeted for sexual harassment. Older workers may be harassed into retiring or foregoing training and promotions because of their age and perceived disabilities. Workers whose religions include set ideas on gender may clash with workers expressing their gender identity under the Supreme Court’s ruling protecting it.

Regardless of one’s personal views, no one can deny that the workplace has changed. Employers that don’t — or won’t — recognize harassment and hostility between co-workers, supervisors and customers or clients are vulnerable to lawsuits and runaway jury awards. Add to this newly finalized EEOC harassment guidance that spells out countless examples of hostile environments and you had better pay attention.

You won’t be able to predict every form hostility at work might take, but you can put in place a system to look for it and address it as it arises. In this webinar on Wednesday, July 31, you will learn to create a system that identifies various forms of harassment and hostility under the new EEOC guidance and stops that harassment before it does irreparable harm to your employees and your reputation.

Webinar Agenda

  • Recognizing what a hostile work environment looks like now that the EEOC has comprehensive updated guidance covering all forms of harassment based on protected status
  • Creating a comprehensive anti-hostility and harassment policy that will help prevent, identify and fix hostile work environments of every sort. Hint: The key is training and accountability
  • How to root out systemic harassment — hostility that’s baked into your organization’s culture — and why you should never punish employees who bring it to light
  • How to ensure all managers and supervisors understand their responsibilities, including how to handle discrimination and harassment they witness, and comply with the EEOC’s increasing expectation to encourage bystander reporting as a component of preventing and stopping harassment
  • Reining in all forms of hostility and harassment, whether it is aimed at your employees, customers or clients, and regardless of where the harassment is coming from
  • Dealing with the most difficult harassment cases, like those that involve behavior from customers, patients or clients, and what steps you can reasonably take
  • Hear examples of harassment, including unusual and emerging forms targeting teleworkers, religious beliefs and practices, gender identity, race and social-media usage, and hostility based on more than one protected characteristic
