Date: 04/14/2017

Time: 1492164000 - 1492167600 PST

Be kind, be respectful and play nice with others. More than just playground rules from our parents, these social value propositions should be the hallmark of every workplace.  Sadly, they are not. Social division, religious beliefs, political ideologies, misinformation, and overall bad behavior continue to create unnecessary barriers to our corporate commitment to embody EEO principles of equality and tolerance. We are part an ever-changing and increasingly diverse workforce whose members represent a variety of cultures, backgrounds, and social experiences, and it is critical that we find an appropriate balance between these competing interests. This is a highly interactive, engaging, and informative program with active audience participation throughout.

Join us as we discuss an organization’s legal responsibility to prevent and correct harassment, bullying, and discrimination, as well as where an organization can or should draw the line between appropriate and inappropriate workplace behavior.

  • Understand an organization’s legal responsibility to prevent and correct inappropriate workplace behavior, including harassment, bullying, discrimination and retaliation.
  • Discuss the difference between workplace bullying and illegal harassment.
  • Explore the troublesome grey areas of playing nice with others at work through real-life scenarios and Q&A.
