Most employers are familiar with employment discrimination to some degree. They know
that there are laws prohibiting discrimination against employees for various reasons. Yet,
employees continue to file discrimination charges by the tens of thousands. Last year, the EEOC received 89,385 charges of workplace discrimination. While there is no guaranteed method to prevent an employee from filing an employment discrimination charge, employers can greatly reduce their risk and be in the best possible position to defend against potential charges by understanding the basic components of employment discrimination addressed in this webinar.

Webinar Topics to be Discussed:
• Overview of the laws that prohibit employment discrimination.
• The theories/claims of employment discrimination.
• Employment actions that lead to employment discrimination charges.
• The administrative process that handles employment discrimination charges.
• Consequences of liability for employment discrimination.
• Employer tips for preventing/defending against employment discrimination
