Harassment and Discrimination Basics webinar

Know what courts and the EEOC look for

By

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present Harassment and Discrimination Basics on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, at 10:00 AM CDT.

Discrimination and harassment claims are expensive for employers. They are monetarily expensive to defend and they are man-power expensive because they are so time consuming for any manager dealing with the problems. One way to limit your liability is to know what courts and the EEOC is looking for in a discrimination and harassment case and ensure your business does not catch their attention. In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Protected Classes;
  • The two types of discrimination;
  • What makes harassment unlawful;
  • Who can be liable; and
  • What the EEOC and Courts expect employers to do when they receive a complaint.
