Course Description

Harassment in the workplace can be a form of illegal employment discrimination. This workshop is designed to provide Mandatory Reporters with a greater understanding of the City's APM 3-5, Prohibited Harassment and Discrimination, and the legal and social implications of discrimination in the form of sexual, gender, racial or disability-based harassment in the workplace. Emphasis will be placed on increasing sensitivity to what constitutes a problem and why an immediate, constructive response is important. The discussion will also focus on exploring good management practices and policies requiring the maintenance of an environment that is free of discriminatory harassment.

Mandatory Reporters are defined as Supervisors, Managers, Lead Workers, and Department/Division Heads or are employees in the Mayor's Office, Department of Civil Rights, or Human Resources. They are required to take this training 45 days after hire or promotion, and then once every three years.

If you are not a Mandatory Reporter, please register for Prohibited Harassment and Discrimination Policy.
