Discrimination and Harassment Prevention for Supervisors Training Outline (Spanish & English)


Discrimination and Harassment Prevention training is needed because of the negative impact that sexual harassment can have on both employer and employee in the workplace. In addition to the time and expense of a potential complaint, 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. Supervisors must avoid anything that could be perceived as discrimination and harassment, must stop discrimination and harassment when aware of it, and must respond to such conduct appropriately.

This training concerns discrimination and harassment based on race, religion, sex, national origin, color, age and disability, and any other protected classification under the law. It is important that employers and employees learn about discrimination and harassment and what they can do to stop it. Harassment prevention training may also provide an affirmative defense for employers if a complaint is filed against them.

The goal of this course is to teach the trainee on what they can do to help their employer create and maintain a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. As with other HR Classroom trainings, employers can fully document trainee activity. Your organization’s own policy can also be inserted directly into each training.
