Please join us on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 as we welcome Marvin Frazier, ADR Coordinator of EEOC and learn about:

EEOC and “The 800 pound Monster in the Work Environment: Workplace Harassment

“According to the findings of a recent EEOC task force, workplace harassment remains a persistent problem. Of the 90,000 charges received by the EEOC in 2015, one third included allegations of workplace harassment including charges of unlawful harassment on the basis of sex. Unfortunately, much of the time sex-based harassment goes unreported. Victims often try to just avoid the harasser or attempt to ignore, forget or endure the behavior fearing they will not be believed, that nothing will be done anyway, or that they will face social and professional retaliation if they report inappropriate behavior. Although standing up to harassment in the workplace can be daunting, the good news is that EEOC has recovered over $160 million on behalf of workers alleging harassment. That’s just the beginning of the negative impacts employers face if harassment goes unchecked, however. Workplace harassment costs employers in terms of negatively affecting all their workers, decreased productivity, high turnover rates and reputational harm as well.”

 For HR Professionals this session the objective is to raise awareness of what constitutes workplace harassment; To raise awareness of employer’s responsibility to prevent workplace harassment and a hostile work environment; Provide guidance to assist employers in eradicating workplace harassment."
