HR Competencies

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and state fair employment agencies continue to receive tens of thousands of discrimination charges each year—and they collect millions of dollars on behalf of employees. Complaints of workplace discrimination continue to be one of the areas that have the most potential for employer liability. In order to protect your organization, it is critical that management and human resources are able to identify and appropriately address potential issues as they arise.

This class will provide participants with an overview of federal and state civil rights laws such as the Colorado Pregnancy Accommodation law, along with practical tips employers can implement to reduce exposure for discrimination charges. Participants will practice applying their knowledge of EEO law to real-life scenarios.

Overview

  • Understanding what constitutes employment discrimination and harassment
  • Distinguishing between disparate impact and disparate treatment
  • How to respond to employee complaints
  • How to effectively investigate complaints
  • Protecting against retaliation complaints
  • Recent legal developments in discrimination law

Who Should Attend

This class is a “must” for all levels of management and human resources professionals. The courts continue to expand employer liability under EEO law. Consequently, we recommend attending this class every two to three years.
