Hostile Work Environment Claims: Employer Responsibility for Preventing Workplace Harassment - Chicago (HR Credit)
Thursday, August 15, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
When hostile work environment claims increase, productivity decreases and has a negative impact on your bottom line. Protect yourself against workplace harassment claims by being proactive and understanding your responsibility as an employer.
Harassment represents one of the most destructive workplace issues faced by public and private employers today. In addition to sexual harassment, there are liability issues based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, age and others. Harassment can manifest in jokes, negative stereotyping, hostile acts or simple thoughtless comments, but the ultimate outcome is the same: legal liability, profound emotional stress, lower employee morale and reduced productivity.
Now more than ever, it's important for human resources professionals to understand and recognize the various forms of harassment and eliminate it in your organization.
