MICRO COURSE DESCRIPTION:

When it comes to sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination, it is imperative that school districts understand the risks involved in handling complaints. With retaliation claims rising more than 30% over the last decade, employers are tasked with ensuring that proper practices are in place to ensure that there is no retribution against the employee who brought forth the complaint. In addition, school districts face liability when employees or supervisors engage in unlawful harassment or discrimination if the employer fails to take prompt and appropriate remedial action.  This collection of nano learning courses provides a roadmap for conducting effective and comprehensive harassment prevention training that will resonate with your staff and satisfy your liability insurers.

Participants will be able to:

·         Identify Title IX Compliance requirements for responding to complaints.

·         Identify the four main types of biases that exist in a school district.

·         Define terms used to describe typical character assumptions.

·         Distinguish between a reaction made using the Reflective System versus the Reflexive System.

·         Identify what constitutes actionable unlawful harassment.

·         Identify the characteristics of an inclusive work culture.

·         Identify the expectations required to ensure a work environment is free of harassment.

·         Identify the purpose and requirements of a workplace investigation.
