HR Competencies

  • HR Expertise


The EEOC has redoubled its efforts to address harassment prevention. Employers should too. There has also been a recent surge of harassment allegations. Providing managers and supervisors with appropriate training is one of the key ways an employer can prevent liability for harassment claims, avoid retaliation claims, and promote a respectful work environment. Predictions are that 9 out of 10 employers will receive an internal complaint of harassment this year. Has it happened to your organization yet? Was the management team of your organization prepared to respond?

The term “hostile work environment” seems ubiquitous in today’s workplace. Do your managers and supervisors know it when they see it? What is the difference between inappropriate conduct in the workplace and behavior that sinks to the level of illegal harassment? Do your managers and supervisors know how to respond properly and prevent retaliation claims? Do they know they are held to a higher standard for their own conduct?


  • Discussion of case studies to determine whether conduct crosses the legal line
  • Workplace behaviors are disrespectful, inappropriate, or potentially illegal
  • Laws prohibiting sexual harassment and other types of harassment
  • Strategies all managers and supervisors must utilize to address inappropriate behavior to prevent illegal harassment
