By clearly stating expectations for employee behavior, the course lays a foundation that will help organizations build a culture of diversity, inclusion and compliance.
New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
WeComply, a Thomson Reuters business and leader in web-based ethics and compliance training, is now offering a Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training course designed for employees in Canada. This 30-minute course follows a similar format to the Preventing Discrimination and Harassment course for employees in the U.S., but has a focus on Canadian anti-discrimination laws.
The training course for Canadian employees opens with a discussion about the importance of diversity followed by explanations of respect and disrespect in the workplace, federal anti-discrimination laws, and provincial and territorial anti-discrimination laws. Other topics covered in the course include the definition of sexual harassment, the types of sexual harassment, consensual relationships, conduct to be avoided, internet and email harassment, unwelcome physical behaviors, unwelcome verbal behaviors, offensive displays in the workplace and reporting discrimination and harassment. The course concludes with a description of what employees can do, and a final quiz highlighting real-world compliance issues.
“While this Preventing Discrimination and Harassment course certainly does enable Canadian organizations to meet applicable anti-harassment requirements, it does much more,” said Steve Perreault, Global Head of eLearning. “By clearly stating expectations for employee behavior, the course lays a foundation that will help organizations build a culture of diversity, inclusion and compliance.”
