TITLE OF SESSION
Harassment? Bullying? You be the Judge!
1. To identify and root out workplace harassment and bullying.;
2. To learn practical investigation techniques to strengthen investigations and
support disciplinary decisions.; and,
3. To understand how an "outsider" (judge, jury, EEOC investigator) views
Did she really say THAT? Did he really do THAT? Ugh! We will cover practical tips for identifying, investigating and addressing workplace
harassment and bullying of all types. Through the use of real-life examples and HR "war stories" (i.e., the stuff HR professionals REALLY deal with
everyday), attendees will be better prepared to root out workplace harassment and bullying. We'll wrap up the session with a mini-trial so that attendees can see a case through the eyes of a judge, jury or EEOC investigator - it's never as clear-cut as we think. The results may just cause
you to think more strategically about how you handle future harassment cases. The session will be fun and informative, guaranteed!
