Creating a Respectful WorkplaceCOURSE ID: CRW
DESCRIPTION

Workplace harassment is any unwelcomed verbal, visual or physical conduct on a basis prohibited by law that creates an intimidating, offensive or hostile work environment or that interferes with work performance. This can include jokes, gestures, visual material in paper or electronic media. In 1999, the Supreme Court impressed upon employers the need to train employees on harassment and discrimination prevention. No longer can employers simply rely on the existence of policies against harassment and discrimination to avoid punitive damages. Training on harassment and discrimination prevention is critical to protecting the organization.
