Political Correctness at Work: Where to Draw the Line
Many employers are uncertain about how far they must go to police the words and actions of employees at work. Do you need a policy against bullying? How should you reconcile employees’ competing sensitivities regarding politics and religion? Can you still require employees to follow a dress code? In this program, you will learn how maintaining a too “politically correct” workplace can backfire.
- Learn how to draft a policy against harassment that will not encourage complaints from hypersensitive employees
- Learn the limits of “freedom of speech” in the workplace
- Learn how far you must go to accommodate employees’ religious beliefs and practices
