Harassment Prevention Training in Human Resources

Your boss has questioned your plans to include harassment prevention training in next year's budget. He said, "We don't have any harassment around here. Why do we need this kind of training?" What are some of the reasons an organization should ***** harassment ***** training?

First of all, it might behoove this ***** to remember that simply because t***** has not been a complaint at this date ********** not mean that harassment ***** not and is ***** occurring within the *****. *****, for any problem, is the best cure, and before a lawsuit is brought before the organization it is wise ***** address the problem, and to show that the organization c*****s about the issue. Secondly, a gentle reminder to ***** boss might be in order that male and female perceptions of what constitutes ***** may ***** radically different. Even legal scholars have disputed whether a 're*****sonable person' or a 're*****sonable woman' standard is the ***** standard to have, when determining if something ***** or is not harassment. Regardless of where the ***** stands on th***** legal dispute, ***** fact that men and wo***** often speak d*****ferent 'languages' and have different standards of what ***** harassment is important to keep in mind. Discussing the issue, finding out how to diffuse tensions, and also simply underst*****ing that different people ***** have different comfort levels within ***** organization is also vital in prevent*****g possible misunderstandings.

But even if what the boss says is true, and that *****re are no tensions at a very high level between the genders th*****t potentially approach the legal definition of *****, even social dis***** can result in lost productivity. *****nce, a workshop on h*****rassment preventi***** could potentially be a huge benefit to the comp*****. Additionally, attitudes ***** ***** workplace are constantly changing, and what was not considered harassment 20 years ago is unacceptable today, thus it is important, regardless, for the company to instate such training as part of its general workplace routine, ***** it does become a problem in the future, as no one can predict what the employees ***** ***** company's of the future will believe, look, or sound like.

You recently interviewed an African American c*****idate, but did not hire her. When she found out she ***** not get ***** job, she called the office and said ***** felt ***** hiring decision w***** discriminatory ***** she was considering taking legal action. What laws would ***** base this on? To just*****y your employment *****, what factors ***** to be addressed?

According to The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Title VII of the Civil Rights Act ***** 1964 prohibits ***** discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. If this ***** American candidate was denied employment ***** upon her ***** or gender, the office ***** ***** in violation of federal ***** law. To protect itself, the office might wish to point to its policy that it is an ***** Opportun*****y Employer or demonstrate that African-American employees are present
