Overview of the webinar

If you are a supervisor, manager, HR professional or business owner, you – and the interests of your organization and its employees – will be well-served by developing a solid knowledge base with regards to key Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance considerations, updated for 2021.

You’re off to a great start if you know – and follow – your company’s EEO & harassment prevention policies (assuming they are sound and current), but that is just the ‘basics’ of what you really need to know. You’ll be best prepared to meet the risk management needs of your company and employees if you explore this complicated area of compliance at a higher level.

This session focuses on what supervisory and HR professionals (at all levels!) need to know about EEO regulations and requirements, including protected characteristics, workplace harassment, retaliation, and more.
