Workplace Harassment

Workplace Harassment

Harassment can be based on a variety of factors such as race, sex, and disability. Experiencing an uncomfortable situation in the workplace may be more than an unpleasant event; it may be against the law. This alone is what makes this topic very important for every organization.

Our Workplace Harassment workshop will give participants the tools to recognize harassment when it occurs. It will help them understand their rights and responsibilities, and create a safe environment for all. Through this workshop your participants will recognize that it is necessary for everyone to identify harassment and exercise anti-harassment policies.
