Managing Workplace Harassment

Workplace harassment remains a growing problem worldwide. Oh, you may say, “not in the current crises” or “not our team,” but workplace harassment is an ever increasing issue in the organizations today.  It can come in the form of a slap, a phrase, an email, or reassignment of duties.  Harassment is not okay and it is illegal.  Harassment needs to be reported so that the company can handle the issue properly and remediate any future problems.

Viruses don’t discriminate but newer types of discriminations have emerged in the current crises.  At times referred as “the Chinese virus” it’s worth knowing that putting the blame on people of a certain race or ethnicity not only doesn’t help us combat this crisis, but it actively works against us at a time when it’s in everyone’s interests to stand together.  READ presents the ‘Managing Workplace Harassment eLearning course free for anyone who might feel the need for training on the differences of working options from home.
