Why should you attend?

According to the EEOC, harassment continues to be a huge problem in the workplace. In an effort to clear up confusion as to when employers should be held liable for workplace harassment, the EEOC recently issued new guidance. The guidance addresses so much more than the run of the mill sexual harassment claims - it includes racial harassment, sexual orientation harassment, and so much more! For the first time, the EEOC also gives us an in-depth discussion of what it is looking for in your harassment policies and your harassment training programs.
