Employee Workshop for EEO
All employers have the responsibility to educate their employees about their legal rights and responsibilities in relation to harassment, discrimination and bullying in the workplace. By employees attending this Employee Workshop, Employers can minimise their liability by demonstrating they are taking reasonable steps to prevent their employees from doing anything contrary to the Equal Opportunity Act.
In a unique, fun, interactive approach that has even the toughest audience engaged, your staff will learn what is discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying and examples of non-acceptable behaviours across a broad range of workplace contexts. The result is that they leave better informed of what they can’t do and what the consequences are if they cross the line.
Who is this course for?
This course is specifically designed to educate ALL employees about their rights and responsibilities under the Equal Opportunity Act and related legislation. If you are new to your organisation or you have never received information about EEO requirements then this course is for you. Regular training on the subject is also recommended and on average should be done every 2-3 years.
This half day workshop is run in-house to educate and inform employees about the laws in relation to harassment, discrimination and bullying. People are provided with relevant case examples of when others crossed the line and ended up in court. They are also informed of what to do if they are a victim and what their organisation’s policies are.
