Sexual Harassment & Conflict Resolution

Sexual Harassment Training (morning):
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees, including state and local governments. It also applies to employment agencies and to labor organizations, as well as to the federal government.

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment to an unreasonable degree, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.

This training will discuss sexual harassment and provide you with the necessary knowledge to: 

   1. Define sexual harassment
   2. Identify potential victims and harassers
   3. Identify conduct and behavior that is not appropriate in the workplace
   4. Help prevent such harassment
   5. Report incidents of possible sexual harassment
   6. Increase the chances of having a positive work environment

Conflict Resolution Training (afternoon):
In the world of business, the presence of conflict can be a serious issue that needs immediate attention. If workers in your small business appear not to be interacting as cooperatively as you would like, engage in some conflict resolution to remedy this problem. By suggesting an assortment of simple strategies, you can aid your workers in putting these periods of conflict behind them.

This training will address the following:

   1.  Conflict Management Strategies
   2.  Five Approaches to Conflict Resolution
