Creating a Respectful Workplace in Today’s World
In this professional development program, attorney Jennifer Mirus, Boardman & Clark, LLP, will discuss the elements of a respectful workplace and employee behaviors that are unacceptable.
We all know that workplace harassment is an ever-growing concern. The #MeToo movement has raised awareness and demonstrated that inappropriate conduct is found in all industries at all levels. And our use of social media has created a culture where our work lives and private lives are blended like never before. We have unprecedented access to each other and our private lives. In this climate, employers are taking greater steps to address workplace harassment and to foster environments of respect and inclusion.
This program will address the basics of workplace harassment. We will explore what is and is not illegal harassment, what most employers expect of employees, and what employees should do if they believe harassment is occurring in their workplaces. We will also review how off-the-clock behavior, interactions with third parties, and social media use can land employees in trouble and cause legal issues. You will leave with a greater understanding of the issue of harassment in the workplace and what is expected of you as a professional.
