Harassment in the workplace is generally defined as any unwelcome conduct based on race, color, religion, sex, natural origin, age, disability, or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful when employees are forced to endure offensive behavior in order to keep their jobs or when the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a hostile work environment. One form of discrimination is based on sex and can occur in many forms and under many different circumstances. Harassment in the workplace remains a persistent problem. All employers are obligated to maintain a harassment-free workplace for its employees at all times.
This course is designed for employees to understand their rights and responsibilities related to workplace harassment, how we can stop behaviors before they become harassment and how they can assist in making the workplace free of harassment.
This course is mandatory for Nevada Appellate Courts Justices/COA Judges and employees.
