Age Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Training for Supervisors Training Outline


Age discrimination prevention training is important because of the negative impact that discrimination can have on you and your workplace. In addition to the time and expense of a potential complaint, age discrimination and harassment can impact the workplace in a negative manner by causing lower employee morale, increased absenteeism, lower productivity, decreased commitment to the employer, and decreased motivation. Age discrimination and harassment prevention training also may help the employer show that the employer used a reasonable factor other than age in making an employment decision. It is important that you learn about age discrimination so that you know how to stop it in your workplace. As with all other HR Classroom trainings, any organization can quickly and easily bring their employees up to speed on these issues as well as fully document trainee activity. Your organization’s own policy can also be inserted directly into each training.
