This workshop is designed to empower employers and employees with the specialist knowledge and skills necessary to comply with statutory obligations to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace and handle sensitive discrimination matters and traumatized employees appropriately.
Keeping in mind the complexity of the issues and the lack of legal certainty in this area of the law, this seminar provides an ideal opportunity to delegates to raise concerns, clarify the law and establish best practice procedures in relation to the handling of sexual harassment in your workplace while demystifying the confusing external dispute resolution processes provided by the CCMA and High Courts.
For employers, this seminar is vital in taking measures to protect against future litigation in the form of unfair discrimination claims and ensuring a safe working environment by providing informative training sessions to employees in relation to their rights.
Employers are encouraged to develop and implement policies and procedures that will lead to the creation of workplaces where employers and workers respect one another’s integrity and dignity, their privacy, and their right to equity in the workplace.
