Event description
Identify problematic behaviors before they become "bullying” in the workplace.

About this Event

Every employee deserves the right to be treated with dignity and respect at work. However, California law recognizes that there can often be a thin line between appropriate performance management, abusive conduct, and harassment. When is a manager simply being critical and taking reasonable steps to address performance issues and mistakes on the job, and when is that manager crossing the line and being a jerk? That is not always a simple question to answer, which is why the law does not generally prohibit "bullying" in the workplace. At the same time, California recognizes that abusive conduct can have all sorts of negative consequences on employees and the workplace. It can be demoralizing. It can cause depression, anxiety, insomnia, and stress. It can create legal exposure when perceived to be based on an employee's protected classifications (e.g., age, race, sex, disability). It can impact productivity. And often, the bullying can come from people in higher positions of the company, which makes it harder to stop the behavior. For these reasons, and in the interest of promoting a healthy work environment for everyone, it is important to understand, recognize, and gain the tools to prevent bullying in the workplace. Through this interactive and engaging presentation, together we will discuss and learn:

1) How to identify problematic behaviors before they become "bullying”

2) How to address workplace bullying when you see it or hear about it

3) When and how to effectively address "the bully"

4) Where the fine line is between friendly teasing and hurtful conduct

5) Strategies for creating a workplace that is free of abusive conduct
