This workplace harassment training video explains that every employee has the responsibility to maintain a harassment-free workplace.
Workplace harassment is not just about sex and gender. It can also involve various cultural differences, race, religion, age, disabilities and other protected characteristics. Harassment can occur in any workforce, in any job situation, and any form of employee discrimination that falls within these categories is illegal.
The Employee Version of Harassment and Diversity Respecting Differences focuses on employee sensitivity and awareness. This training program teaches why a harassment policy that emphasizes a respect for coworker differences is not only required by the law, but is also the right thing to do.
Your employees need to know that they are just as responsible for maintaining a harassment-free office as you are. Things like inappropriate pictures, jokes, emails, gestures, and touching can create a hostile environment where protected characteristics become targets. Get employees to see that certain behaviors can be interpreted as offensive. Once they know exactly what will and will not be tolerated, everyone can work together to ensure that your diverse workplace operates on a level of respect and understanding.
Employees will learn:
- Appropriate behaviors that will help maintain a harassment-free workplace.
- When "joking around" crosses the line and becomes workplace harassment.
- It's not the intent that matters, but how the behavior is perceived by the recipient that counts.
- Why the employer's workplace harassment prevention policy must be taken seriously.
- What to do when someone is the target of harassment.
Both the manager and employee harassment training videos revolve around a dramatic story showing an all-too-common situation, where diverse cultural backgrounds test employees' interpersonal skills, and friction grows from just kidding around into illegal harassment. Our narrators, Littler Mendelson employment law attorneys Bruce Sarchet and Kevin O'Neill, provide their expertise and legal perspective.
