In Fiscal Year 2017 almost 100,000 discrimination charges were filed with the EEOC and state Fair Employment agencies resulting in more than $300 million in non-litigated awards. And according to analyses by the law firms, EEO compliance represents a significant compliance issue.

An appellate court decision, which underscored the potential liability of improper EEO and Affirmative Action management, stated: " leaving managers with hiring authority in ignorance of the basic features of the discrimination laws is an 'extraordinary mistake' for a company to make, and a jury can find that such an extraordinary mistake amounts to reckless indifference." Mathis v. Phillips Chevrolet, Inc., No. 00-1892, Seventh U.S. Circuit court of Appeals (2001).

Area Covered In The Webinar

Why should you attend?

Companies can ill-afford to make "extraordinary mistakes." Your organization's responsibilities require more than just getting the job done. Your organization directly affects employee commitment and engagement, morale and productivity, and employee retention. And since how well your organization manages and complies with the law, your actions - or inactions - expose your organization to significant liabilities.

Unfortunately, without ongoing training, your organization - even with the best intentions - can make mistakes - often, costly ones. This training webinar is designed to help your organization recognize and provide its management team with the basic tools to help them manage these key issues effectively - and lawfully. It further provides you with actionable information to reduce your organization's exposure to employment discrimination claims.
