Has your company become a playground?

Most employers would have to agree that bullying and abusive conduct is bad for business in numerous respects. Nevertheless, California's imposition of formal training requirements and the increasing push for more laws against bullying in the workplace present a new and costly frontier for employee lawsuits, with little guidance to business owners, supervisors, and human resource professionals on how to avoid potential liability and workplace strife.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Ryan M. Haws will discuss how to recognize, address and avoid bullying and abusive conduct in the workplace. Topics covered will include the following:

  • Workplace training for management and staff on bullying and abusive conduct at work
  • The interplay between harassment and bullying (and how to tell the difference)
  • Responding to and investigating employee complaints of bullying
  • Imposing disciplinary action for bullying or abusive conduct
  • Legal exposure and cost to the company when bullying occurs
  • Development of anti-bullying policies (what to include, and what to avoid!)
  • The new abusive conduct rules and the impact upon employers
  • When the underperforming employee blames bullying for a bad review
  • How garden-variety gossip becomes unlawful bullying
  • Cyber-bullying: the employer's obligations and rights in social media
  • Common characteristics of bullies and different types of bullies
