As a small business owner and an employer, you may have legal responsibilities under the federal employment anti-discrimination laws enforced by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This workshop is designed with the intent to educate small businesses and help owners and managers focus on running a successful business. Whether you are dealing with a complaint filed with the EEOC or a lawsuit filed by the EEOC or an individual alleging employment discrimination, the results can be a drain to your mental and financial resources. Studies show that complaints of employment discrimination have been known to lead to moral issues at the workplace and negatively impact creativity and productivity. This workshop will cover topics including:
- History of EEOC and Agency Update
- Breaking the Silence on Sexual Harassment; Job Segregation: Race and National Origin Discrimination; Stereotypes Against Muslims; Religious Accommodations; Working with Breast Feeding Mothers; and, Respecting LGBTQ Employees
- Leveling the Playing Field & Reasonable Job Accommodations for Employees with a Disability or Religion
- Equal Pay for Equal Work
- Hiring “Young” and “Recent College Graduates”
- Genetic Information and the Application Process
- ADR v. Investigation – Achieving a “Win-Win” Situation
- Best Practices on How to Work with the EEOC
- Retaliation: A Bad Business Practice
