The Greater New Orleans Foundation Organizational Effectiveness Initiative (OE) and Gillis, Ellis & Baker, Inc. are partnering to host a workshop on the harassment & discrimination issues in human resources and risk management. This workshop is designed for executive directors, human resource directors, and staff and board members with human resource management or supervision responsibilities.

Human Resources Insights: Harassment & Discrimination Issues and Risk Management
Tuesday, May 17, 2016
9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m
Greater New Orleans Foundation
1055 St. Charles Ave. Suite 120, New Orleans, LA

Human Resources plays an important role in risk management. Each year, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) receives thousands of complaints from employees alleging employment discrimination. You don’t want to be in that number. Protect your organization and your employees.

This free workshop will help to demystify Federal employment discrimination laws, including what is prohibited, how these laws are enforced, punishments for violations, and protected classes. Learn the different types of sexual harassment and what employers must do to protect themselves. Non-compliance in some of these areas can result in penalties and fines, as well as bad PR.

This workshop will help your organization:

  • Reduce your risk of being held liable in employee management situations
  • Create a workplace environment that treats employees both fairly and legally
  • Eliminate harassment and discrimination to create a safe work environment for all
