Vigilant Training Courses

Preventing Discrimination and Harassment

Course Description

This training for supervisors explores what standards can be used for making lawful employment decisions and how to avoid unintentionally discriminating against applicants and employees. We’ll learn about the equal opportunity standard and what factors can, and cannot, be taken into consideration when making employment decisions. We’ll then switch gears to discuss the laws prohibiting sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and retaliation. We will apply the law, your policy, and your culture to challenging examples, and discuss how to spot, confront, and document inappropriate behavior, and we’ll educate supervisors about how their action or inaction can create liability for the company.
