LVCC N259-261
Monday 06/24/2019 07:15 AM - 08:15 AM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Learn what constitutes retaliation and enhance your ability to create policies and procedures to minimize problems, claims and lawsuits 

The number of retaliation claims has nearly tripled since 1997; retaliation now is the most frequently filed charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Even if a discrimination or harassment claim fails, a retaliation claim may prevail, which can bring harm to your organization's reputation and bottom-line results. Retaliation is not an HR issue; it is a leadership issue.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate and align your current policies to address retaliation; provide multiple avenues for employees to express their concerns.
  • Implement proper training to enhance managers’ and leadership's knowledge of retaliation, which can alleviate retaliation claims on the front lines.
  • Ensure that applied policies and practices are in place.
