Seminar to Address Conflicts in Workplace
SANTA CLARITA Techniques for investigating and resolving claims of workplace discrimination and harassment will be the focus of a special seminar designed for corporate managers. The seminar, scheduled Thursday, April 1, also will help managers create and maintain a workplace environment that reduces the likelihood of such claims.
Whos Telling the Truth in Workplace Discrimination & Harassment Investigations will utilize actual examples and case studies to illustrate the proper ways to conduct investigations of such complaints, shed personal biases and avoid costly mistakes.
The breakfast seminar one in a series of workshops designed to educate businesspeople about important and topical workplace issues will be presented jointly by the Employee Training Institute (ETI) at College of the Canyons, the Valley Industrial Association (VIA) and Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA).
An important aspect of the seminars is to convey some crucial skills to managers whove climbed the corporate ladder quickly, but didnt necessarily receive a formal education in communicating with employees effectively and within legal guidelines, said Pamela Welden, director of ETI. Its important for managers to understand the constantly changing California laws that affect the outcomes of many types of employee requests and demands. These laws have heavy financial impacts on companies that violate them, skirt them or dont show good faith as to their intent.
