Use this work harassment video as part of an instructor-led course to train California managers about their responsibilities to maintain a respectful workplace, free from sexual and other forms of harassment.
All managers and supervisors need to understand more than the basic rights and wrongs pertaining to workplace harassment. They also need a healthy dose of empathy—one that helps them see beyond the legal implications of maintaining a respectful workplace to appreciate the emotional aspects that can affect morale and productivity. And California managers need to understand the specific responsibilities set forth under California law.
Demonstrating workplace behaviors through a series of compelling stories that include today’s newer social media technologies, this broadcast-quality training video explains the legal definition of harassment and provides specific examples, while explaining to your California managers the potential harm that can be caused by unwelcome conduct, and their responsibility for preventing it. They will receive specific instructions on steps they should take in meeting these responsibilities as well as California's unique requirements.
California supervisors will learn how to:
- Display posters and distribute brochures as required by California law.
- Comply with California's specific training requirements.
- Understand California complaint processes and remedies.
- Be aware of what affects their workgroup, including improper use of social media.
- Periodically conduct workplace audits, looking for inappropriate items.
- Respond to complaints of inappropriate behavior.
- Conduct investigations or assist HR/legal, depending on organizational structure.
- Inform employees that retaliation will not be tolerated.
This video portrays supervisors who step in early, before problems escalate. And it emphasizes the theme that a respectful workplace is more pleasant and more productive—which, in the end, makes their job easier.
