Anti-Harassment Training for the Transportation IndustryName: Anti-Harassment Training for the Transportation IndustryDate: July 12, 2018Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDTEvent Description:
Historically male-dominated industries are becoming more diverse, increasing the risk of discrimination and harassment claims. With the news and social media publicizing new accusations of high profile sexual harassment, it is critical for companies to evaluate their practices.
Join Mike Wong and Eric Baker on Thursday, July 12 from noon to 1:00 PM CT as they discuss policies, procedures, and practices that are up-to-date and in line with what you should be doing to minimize your risk and exposure to a complaint of sexual harassment or gender discrimination.
There is no “one-size fits all” solution across all industries when it comes to addressing anti-discrimination policies and procedures. In the transportation industry, employees are out on the road with little to no direct in-person supervision. Similarly, if the driver is an independent contractor and not an employee, providing training or addressing discrimination or harassment could mean exerting direction and control over the independent contractor and risk misclassifying them.
Ultimately, companies in the transportation industry must be proactive regarding sexual harassment and gender discrimination, including:
- What steps you should be taking to address discrimination or harassment in the workplace
- Important policies and procedures
- Addressing training and management of employees
- Addressing independent contractors
- What should be done if discrimination or harassment occurs in the workplace
