Discover how to deal with the many varieties of illegal harassment that occurs in the workplace based on an employee’s race or color, religion, national origin or disability.

Even if not required by law, court decisions and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidelines make clear that training for all types of harassment may be critical in raising a defense and avoiding punitive damages in harassment lawsuits. Learn what behaviors are associated with different types of harassment as well as effective ways to confronting and resolving them.
