Harassment: Sex, Religion And Beyond - CA Manager Version
The California Managers Version will help all managers and supervisors understand more than the basic rights and wrongs pertaining to workplace harassment. They also need a healthy dose of empathy, one that helps them see beyond the legal implications of maintaining a respectful workplace to appreciate the emotional aspects that can affect morale and productivity. And California managers need to understand the specific responsibilities set forth under California law.
California supervisors will learn how to display posters and distribute brochures as required by California law, comply with California's specific training requirements, understand California complaint processes and remedies, be aware of what affects their workgroup, including improper use of social media, periodically conduct workplace audits, looking for inappropriate items, respond to complaints of inappropriate behavior, conduct investigations or assist HR/legal, depending on organizational structure, and inform employees that retaliation will not be tolerated.
This video portrays supervisors who step in early, before problems escalate. It emphasizes the theme that a respectful workplace is more pleasant and more productive which, in the end, makes everyone's job easier. Attorney moderators, Stefanie Schaeffer and Greg Dehm, provide commentary throughout, discussing the issues frankly and openly, while providing unique instructions pertaining to supervisors in California.
