Preventing Harassment and Bullying in the Workplace (For Employees)
Harassment and abusive behavior of employees or applicants is bad business for many compelling reasons. All organizations should have a sound policy and practice of harassment and anti-bullying prevention. As part of that program, this module can serve as the content for annual training. It covers not only the law, but the practical implications of harassment, what to do if you observe offensive or abusive behavior, how to submit and complaint, and how to respond to a complaint. This module should be part of every organization's mandatory training program.
The module covers these topics and more:
• Why Harassment and Bullying Are Bad Business
• The Law: Federal, state and organizational policies
• The EEOC Harassment Prevention Guidelines
• Types of Harassment
• Employee Responsibilities
All employees should participate in this program on an annual basis. There are two versions: one for all employees, and supplemental information for managers and supervisors. The manager version is more explicit with regard to managerial responsibilities, how to respond to a harassment or bullying complaint, and manager do's and don'ts.
This in-person module can be presented in a one hour format.
