Preventing Harassment & Discrimination for Employees – California
Preventing Harassment & Discrimination for California Employees
Sexual harassment and abusive conduct incidents trouble the work environment by establishing a negative environment that can ruin working relationships, lower productivity, result in costly administrative actions and even more expensive litigation. You need to protect your employees from sexual harassment and educate them on the explicit policy, encouraging them to report violations freely.
Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. Federal and California state ant-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws.
This harassment and discrimination prevention training course was developed to meet the standards outlined in California SB 1343 and provides employees an awareness of the laws and issues relating to harassment, discrimination and bullying in the workplace. Through realistic scenarios, text and audio, it details the actions and responsibilities for avoiding discriminatory practices, associated with race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability and gender status to create a workplace free of harassment and discrimination.
