Preventing Harassment in the Workplace for Home Health Supervisors

 

Every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect without regard to race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, disability, or other factors protected by law. Some people, however, discriminate toward others based on these differences by engaging in offensive and threatening behaviors. As a supervisor, you should not tolerate harassment in the workplace, including sexual harassment, so therefore you must take steps to prevent its occurrence. You must take any report of harassment seriously by responding with the initiation of an investigation. This course explains your role, as a supervisor, in the prevention of harassment in the workplace. In this course, you will learn the conduct and behaviors that constitute harassment and your role in investigating and preventing harassment.
