Harassment: A New Look for Employees
Run time: 19 Minutes
New forms of harassment are not necessarily covered by law, but they are recent and pervasive manifestations of harassment and hostile environments. Unlike the conventional types of harassment, these recent forms can be much more devastating because they have a greater prevalence within organizations. Workplace bullying in itself is already "four times more common than harassment (based on illegal discrimination)", according to the Workplace Bullying Institute
Harassment: A New Look
will help you and your employees recognize and avoid these new forms of harassment. In this program, a diverse group of employees are discussing with others their personal experiences to show concrete examples and the destructive impact of:
- Workplace bullying
- Discrimination against younger employees by their older colleagues
- ...and more.
Featuring re-enactments of everyday scenarios, the program will acquaint viewers with the issues and help them avoid the challenges that can impede awareness and prevention. The program also reviews basic concepts -- quid pro quo, the reasonable person standard and the hostile work environment -- and relates them to the more recent types of harassment.
We have come a long way since Title VII, but harassment continues to evolve and adapt with new technology and attitudes. Managing its new manifestations is a pressing issue, and it's critical that
your harassment training addresses this head-on. With new training, your organization can help raise awareness by pro-actively educating employees about the devastation these new types of harassment can cause.
