Workplace harassment costs businesses hundreds of millions of dollars every year. The cost to employees’ physical and mental well-being is harder to count.
in 2012 alone, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ordered that $365,400,000 (that's 365.4 million dollars!) be paid out for discrimination and harassment charges. No wonder companies are working to be more proactive in preventing harassment.
But how do you prevent harassment from occurring? What sorts of policies should be in place? What should managers do to protect their employees? And if a complaint is filed, what will you do? All of these questions (and more!) will be answered in this course.
