Additional information about: Sexual Harassment: Training for a Harassment-Free Workplace Employee/California Manager Combo Package (DVDs)
What makes these new programs unique is a sequence of original stories that convey important training points as seen through the eyes of the participants. Instead of explanations from on-screen narrators, first-hand reporting keeps the action moving and makes it personal.
The EMPLOYEE VERSION shows the consequences and potential harm caused by hostile environment and quid pro quo harassment. Employees will also learn about protected characteristics, third-party harassment, retaliation, and other forms of abusive behavior.
The CALIFORNIA MANAGER VERSION teaches California managers about their responsibilities to prevent unwelcome and harassing behavior from occurring in their work-groups, and provides guidance for appropriate responses to take if such unfortunate behavior were to occur. The training content of this video also incorporates California-specific laws including AB 1825, SB 292 and AB 2053.
California law requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide at least two hours of classroom or other effective interactive training and education regarding sexual harassment to all supervisory employees at least once every two years, and new supervisory employees must receive the required training within six months of assuming the supervisory position. (The 20-minute California Manager video is recommended for use as part of a two-hour manager training class led by a qualified trainer.)
- Filmed on location, realistic characters interact in seven dramatic stories:
- Inappropriate talk in the bullpen makes it difficult for an office worker to concentrate on his job.
- Images meant to be private are posted on social media to get revenge after a break-up.
- Lunch hour at a medical center is disrupted by rude comments from an outside vendor.
- A new employee is pressured to go out with a supervisor as part of her “training” in a manufacturing plant.
- City government employees grapple with religious bias and resentment over coworkers who “don’t come from here.”
- Sales reps at a convention center mistreat and exclude a colleague because he “doesn’t fit in.”
- A restaurant kitchen is the setting for borderline behavior that makes one coworker uncomfortable even though her peers are clearly enjoying themselves.
While sexual and other forms of illegal harassment are covered, our focus is on respect and consideration for others. The scenarios are meant to prevent unwelcome behavior BEFORE it escalates out of control.
Our goals with these new programs are to improve behavior overall, encourage communication, and help create workplaces that are respectful, productive—and harassment-free!
