There has been a steady increase of lawsuits in our country stemming from behavioral issues in the workplace. This litigation is very expensive from financial and productivity standpoints of employers and financial and career impact standpoints of employees. You can do a lot to protect yourself from negative financial and career impacts by learning what your employer expects you to do.

Also, this course will help you avoid saying or doing something (whether intentional or not) that may cause someone to bring legal action ($$$) against you. And, you'll learn how to keep someone else (whether intentional or not) from denying you any of the rightful opportunities to which you are entitled as an employee.

These additional points must be presented before going ahead with this course:

  • The course author is not a lawyer and does not present this as legal opinion
  • You must contact your organization's Human Resources Department to learn how your organization deals specifically with the issues we raise in this course
  • After this course, you can no longer say with credibility, "I didn't know that" regarding workplace issues of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
  • Your understanding is more important than your agreement with these issues

This course will help the student understand and be able to apply the legal foundations of behaving in a civil manner within the workplace whether as a member of management or an employee. While it is not intended to replace any similar training provided by an employer, it will be a strong supplement for any that currently exists and will provide a good foundation where none exists.

Participants will learn about the legal linkage and liabilities between employers and employees and how to reduce the potential risk of expensive litigation as much as possible. There are guidelines on providing effective documentation that helps to show the person acted in a reasonable way and to describe the training and guidelines an employer should be providing to the workforce.

Also included are brief summaries of illegal workplace behaviors, sample cases for reference, samples of useful documentation forms, and summaries of the more important laws for easy understanding.
