“ Court decisions are clear: Employers who know or should have known about harassment and don’t stop it are responsible. The acts of the employee become the responsibility of the employer. ”
Our on-site training sessions are customized to meet the particular needs of your organization. Supervisors have certain requirements when it comes to enforcing many employment centered laws. For this reason, we offer specialized training for your managers and supervisors that is different than what we provide for your general population.
We can customize a training session to suit your needs on a variety of compliance topics. Some of our most popular training sessions include:
Sexual Harassment / Hostile Work Environment
Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).
Court decisions are clear: Employers who know or should have known about harassment and don’t stop it are responsible. The acts of the employee become the responsibility of the employer.
Prevention is the best tool to eliminate harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take appropriate steps to prevent and correct unlawful harassment. They should clearly communicate to employees that unwelcome harassing conduct will not be tolerated. They can do this by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process, providing anti-harassment training to their managers and employees, and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains. Employers should strive to create an environment in which employees feel free to raise concerns and are confident that those concerns will be addressed.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal civil rights law designed to prevent discrimination and enable individuals with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society. Business owners face a growing number of disabled-access lawsuits in the wake of an appeals court ruling giving rise to disabled “testers,” as well as the release of detailed federal specifications for curb ramps, self-opening doors, and other standards.
You must provide a reasonable accommodation if a person with a disability needs one in order to apply for a job, perform a job, or enjoy benefits equal to those you offer other employees. You do not have to provide any accommodation that would pose an undue hardship.
Your supervisors need to be aware of the proper policies and procedures with regards to interviewing, hiring, pre-employment testing, reasonable accommodations, and benefits that all employees in the same position receive.
The Family Medical Leave Act is a complex law. FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. An employer is prohibited from interfering with, restraining, or denying the exercise of, or the attempt to exercise, any FMLA right.
Supervisor training is critical. FMLA places a great deal of responsibility upon the employer to designate FMLA in circumstances where an employee may be eligible. An employee who believes his or her rights under the FMLA have been violated has the choice of filing a complaint with the Secretary of Labor or filing a private lawsuit.
It is a requirement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that employees be given a safe and healthy workplace that is reasonably free of occupational hazards. First Aid, CPR and AED training saves lives. Whether it’s required by OSHA, part of your company policy, or you simply want a safer workplace, CT for HR has the training solutions designed by the American Heart Association (AHA) to fit your organization.
OSHA standards require that employee training be conducted “at least annually,” OSHA interprets that to mean that employees must be provided re-training at least once every 12 months Our dedicated trainers can be sure you are staying up-to-date with training requirements for workplace safety.
