Event Description:
Reduce your legal risks by dealing with discrimination and harassment complaints quickly and carefully.

Employers inevitably will receive complaints about discrimination or harassment at the workplace or may receive a request for disability accommodation. California law requires employers to respond to these types of issues promptly and thoroughly. This workshop will cover how to handle these types of complaints or concerns. Specifically the workshop will cover:
  • What is harassment and discrimination?
  • What to do when you receive a complaint of harassment or discrimination.
  • How to conduct an non-biased investigation.
  • What is considered a disability in California?
  • Tips on how to engage in the interactive process.
  • When must an employer accommodate?
  • What if the accommodation is an undue hardship?
