Summary

Thomson Reuters has online sexual harassment training courses that help train employees on how to prevent discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. Not only can workplace discrimination and sexual harassment affect employee productivity, it can also divert resources from the organization's real business. Improper conduct can also lead to liability for the organization and/or individual employees for sexual harassment and workplace discrimination. The U.S. Supreme Court has established legal standards for sexual harassment in the workplace that employers must meet to avoid — or at least minimize — incidents of discrimination and sexual harassment and avoid liability for punitive damages. Employee training and making sexual harassment training courses available is a key part of the defense.

Dating back to the late 1800s, common law in the U.S. defined the employment relationship as "at will," meaning that employers were free to hire and fire at will. Employers could, for example, refuse to hire minorities, segregate the workforce, assign unpleasant work to women, and deny such groups opportunities for advancement. That's all changed. Federal laws now prohibit discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national origin, disability, pregnancy, and genetic information, and some state and local laws protect even more characteristics.
