Workplace Harassment Awareness | 12/05

December 5, 2022
09:00 am - 11:00 am

Virtual Class

Number of Seats Available: 19

Having an anti-harassment policy or sexual harassment policy is not enough. The company is at risk if managers and employees are not trained to be sensitive to comments, gestures, behaviors, or mannerisms that may be construed as harassment or creating a hostile work environment. Additionally, regular training in unlawful harassment prevention is one component that allows employers to use the powerful affirmative defense against claims of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. The aim of Workplace Harassment Awareness is to encourage mutual understanding, sensitivity, and respect among employees, while limiting the potential for expensive charges of discrimination or harassment. 

After completing this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize discrimination and harassment
  • Understand impact of current EEOC statistics and case studies
  • Know what to do if they are a target or witness to harassment
  • Act within the boundaries of respectful workplace behaviors

Class Duration: 1.5 hours 

For Managers and Supervisors 

In addition to the content covered in the Workplace Harassment Awareness course, Workplace Harassment Awareness for Managers and Supervisors is specifically designed for those in leadership roles. It offers clear guidance on how to recognize and prevent harassment, and explains a supervisor’s responsibilities in responding promptly and appropriately. 

After completing this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Know what to do when they receive a complaint of harassment
  • List possible course of action if workplace harassment is suspected
  • List examples of supervisory behaviors that promote a safe and harmonious workplace environment
  • Explain the primary role of a supervisor during a harassment investigation

Class Duration: Additional 0.5 hours 

Technology Minimums for Attending Virtual Training

Archbright provides virtual training to our members so that they can attend courses from most anywhere, but each attendee must ensure that they are working from a location that has the necessary connectivity to the internet to facilitate participation.

Internet connectivity minimums

To ensure that you have a positive experience attending an Archbright University virtual course, you should verify that your internet connectivity provides a minimum of 5 Megabits per second (Mbps) in upload speed. Most internet packages for home-use are advertised by their download speed and not upload speed, and while this can be important for streaming movies or music, it isn’t the only consideration. For using WebEx, Skype for Business, or any VTC solution, the upload speed is just as important as the download speed.

How can I tell what I currently have?

If you are unsure what you currently have, please reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and request the information directly.

If they are unable to give you that information, please visit www.speedtest.net while connected to the internet in the same manner you intend to attend the virtual training…and perform a speed test.

Wireless technology minimums

Additionally, if you connect wirelessly, as many of us do, make sure your wireless router can broadcast at the same speed as your upload speed, if not even higher.

Wireless routers can broadcast at over 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) these days, and many companies don't upgrade your router when you upgrade service. This often means that your wireless speeds are significantly lower than the upload speed that is available to you. This can cause significant issues with using WebEx over your wireless connection.

Other considerations

Remember that each device connected to the internet in your location is taking some of that download and upload capability and wireless connectivity. If you have many devices in your network, it is recommended to have significantly higher speeds to accommodate the increased traffic.

Please contact your internal IT team if you have any questions.
