You have been in Human Resources or management for years. Your plate is full—too much to do and to know in your increasingly stressful job. You are expected to stay current in discrimination and harassment case law for all the federal and state protected classes. You know that the American Disabilities Act and Title VII have expanded with something called an accommodation meeting, but what does that require? You heard that a company was required to pay a plaintiff an additional $1,000,000 because the company didn’t do harassment training—could that be true? You have a company wellness program and have heard that employees are suing for discrimination based on the incentives offered for those who take part in the program. And it still isn’t clear as to whether you can personally be sued for the misconduct.

In this webinar expert speaker Susan Strauss, will review the protected class discrimination and harassment, Discuss the Affirmative Defense (AD) & your responsibility to reduce liability via AD

Session Highlights:

  • Review of the legal elements of discrimination and harassment law

  • List of protected classes (for example, in MN there are 15 including state and federal laws)

  • In-depth discussion of the need for “accommodations” for ADA, religion, and pregnancy

  • Steps of an Accommodation Meeting and follow-up

  • Discussion of the nexus of bullying and harassment

  • What these changes in case law mean for employers
