NEFI Women In Energy

Harassment can traumatize your employees, impact their performance, and undermine your company's daily operations. Do your managers and employees know how to identify and prevent it? Furthermore, did you know that failure to provide sexual harassment training can lead to fines of up to $250,000 in some states? That's on top of the millions of dollars companies may be subject to in liability suits.

In March, NEFI and Women in Energy present "Harassment Awareness Training and Response for Managers and Employees," a series of live ZOOM webinars led by Laurie LaBrie of Integrated Human Resources. For your company's convenience, these training sessions are being offered at three time slots:

Heating fuel company owners, managers, employees, and their associates around the energy trade will learn how to identify and correct behaviors that can harm their coworkers and lead to liability. Topics include:

  1. Legal definitions of harassment and discrimination
  2. Rights and responsibilities of the employer and employees
  3. Reasonable steps to prevent harassment and minimize impact
  4. The impact on your industry, business, and department
  5. Understanding available remedies for the employer and employees

We understand that your managers' and employees' days are already difficult, but consider how difficult the day is for those workers who find themselves subject to harassment and discrimination. In 2022, doing right by your people means ensuring their workplace remains a "safe space" where all are treated with equal respect and dignity. These brief webinars will help you fulfill that obligation and avoid potential liability issues. 

Certificates will be given out upon completion of the course.
