This half-day Respectful Workplace Training starts with a discussion of the minimum requirements of anti-harassment and EEOC law and incorporates your organization’s specific policies regarding harassment prevention at work and all the protected characteristics including sex, race, age, religion, national origin, disability, and sexual orientation.
