The EEOC's strategic plan includes an emphasis on eradicating harassment. Looking at workplaces systematically, both the EEOC and private plaintiff's lawyers are bringing class actions claiming hostile work environments. The session will include a discussion of, and common traps with regard to no-harassment policies, complaint procedures, supervisory training, employee education, no-dating rules, social media, social inclusion, mentoring, retaliation and more. The session will address not only sexual but also racial, ethnic and other forms of unlawful harassment as well as specific danger zones for HR!
