Harassment training generally consists of teaching companies how to avoid liability from sexual harassment complaints. This is especially true in trainings designed for supervisors and managers. The EEOC has found that true prevention begins with management and focuses on teaching leadership how to create a respectful and civil workplace. Now that many employees are working from home, the traditional paradigm of a workplace has changed. This one-hour webinar, hosted by EEOC Outreach and Education Coordinator Brien Shoemaker, will give suggestions and ideas on how to create a culture of civility in your virtual workplace to prevent harassment charges. Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Explain why harassment prevention starts with a respectful workplace
  • Explain how leadership and accountability can prevent harassment
  • Define civility in the workplace
  • Understand how an uncivil workplace can lead to an EEOC charge
  • Determine if there is a need to create a culture of civility and respect in their virtual workplace
  • Develop ideas and plans that would create a culture of civility in a virtual workplace
