How Can We Help You?
Anti Discrimination Policies
In addition to thoroughly spelling out discrimination policies in employee handbooks, every two years your company should be conducting anti-discrimination training. There should be a session for managers and a session for non-managers. Those who take these courses are often surprised how everyday water cooler banter can turn into a harassment or discrimination lawsuit. There has been a surge in this type of litigation in recent years. Someone need only file a complaint, even a completely baseless one, and you may be looking at thousands of dollars in legal fees. Showing that your company engages in anti-discrimination training will help in court to prove that you have done your due diligence and have made efforts to prevent these incidents through employee education.
The most common types of discrimination
- Equal Pay / Compensation
- National Origin
- Race / Color
