OTHER TRAINING

 

Aside from traditional discrimination training, Ross Employment Law offers training regarding other workplace issues.  Training includes interview skills, documentation and discipline, and wage and hour issues.

EMPLOYEE HARASSMENT TRAINING:  DiSCRIMINAtion, HARassment and Retaliation


California employers with 50 or more employees must provide at least 2 hours of interactive training on discrimination, harassment and retaliation to all supervisory employees ever two years.  In order to be effective, training must be informative, interesting, and provide practical examples of how to avoid and how to address inappropriate behavior in the workplace.  Ross Employment Law can offer effective employee harassment training to help avoid unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace.


As of January 1, 2015, this training must also include the prevention of “abusive conduct.”    Abusive conduct is “conduct of an employer or employee in the workplace, with malice, that a reasonable person would find hostile, offensive, and unrelated to an employer's legitimate business interests.”  Ÿ Examples may include: repeated infliction of verbal abuse, such as the use of derogatory remarks, insults, and epithets; verbal or physical conduct that a reasonable person would find threatening, intimidating, or humiliating; or the gratuitous sabotage or undermining of a person's work performance. Ÿ


In addition to training supervisors, employers may decide to provide training on discrimination, harassment and retaliation to non-supervisory personnel.  This type of training can also help prevent workplace issues.
