Description

With harassment and retaliation claims soaring out of control in this country, the EEOC formed a special task force to look into what employers need to be doing not just to deal with these issues as they arise, but more importantly, how to prevent them from occurring in the first place.

In 2016, the task force published its report. The EEOC’s task force made some well-defined changes to the methodologies employers need to follow.

  • What specific changes in harassment training did the EEOC say were needed in its “Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace” Report?
  • How can you IMMEDIATELY identify a “BULLY”?
  • What is the PROPER WAY to address a bully?
  • Why did the EEOC say that LAWYER TRAINING has only made everything WORSE?
  • Why do our and “ZERO TOLERANCE” policies fail?
  • What is BYSTANDER INTERVENTION and why it the most effective tactic every employer should be adopting?
  • Why is CONFLICT RESOLUTION now a vital part of your harassment training?
  • Why is ENABLING also now a vital part of your training?
  • What should employers be saying in their training about RETALATION?
  • Why are employers RESPONSIBLE for what their employees do OFF THE JOB… and what do you need to do about it?
  • What is “GENDER STEREOTYPING” … and WHO DOES IT PROTECT?
  • Is SEXUAL ORIENTATION classified as a PROTECTED CLASS under Title VII?
  • …and MUCH, MUCH more…
