Respectful Workplace

 
 

Creating a respectful workplace reduces sexual harassment, discrimination in workplace, a hostile work environment and retaliation issues, which are not only illegal, they can be a symptoms of a larger problem.

Our program starts with a discussion of the minimum requirements of anti-harassment and EEOC law, along with your organization's policies and procedures preventing harassment at work on the basis of sex, race, age, religion, national origin, disability, and sexual orientation. Going beyond this, we bring in your organizational values, as well as the values of the participants, to begin the process of creating a respectful and informed workplace to avoid EEOC discrimination complaints and discrimination in workplace problems.

With our Respectful Workplace workshop, participants will learn:

  • The legal definition of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation
  • Determine the causes of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation
  • Understand why most instances of harassment and disrespect are unintentional
  • Undergo anti-harassment training by becoming familiar with the organization's anti-harassment policies and procedures
  • Discover how to apply the law and policy to specific case examples
  • Realize the manager's duty to prevent harassment
  • Recognize the manager's duty upon receiving a complaint
  • Be familiar with legal remedies available to victims
  • Learn how to communicate boundaries
  • Learn how to listen to others with respect
  • Learn how to create synergy with others in the workplace
  • Study guidelines for creating a respectful workplace.

Format: Our Respectful Workplace workshop is fully-interactive and can be customized for executives, managers, supervisors, and for all employees.

Whether we're discussing sexual harassment, discrimination, or retaliation, the training and workshops we provide to foster a respectful workplace are engaging and highly interactive. We use humor, stories, case studies, discussions, and exercises to ensure deep learning and practical application. We also feature videos to demonstrate common aspects of harassment and disrespect in short vignettes, which in turn become the starting point for small group discussions and skill-building exercises.

Our attorney-trainers are skilled facilitators with years of experience in the courtroom and the classroom. They can answer all of your questions about maintaining a respectful workplace environment for everyone.
