Affirmative Action

Green Clock Hours: 0.50

Each of us is hired to help an organization perform at its best and provide quality services. We expect the organization and our co-workers to treat us with respect and help us to develop personally and professionally in the workplace. While pursuing employment opportunities, such as applying for a new job or a promotion, though, one may be faced with discrimination based on factors unrelated to ability to do the job. This discrimination and harassment may be based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, ethnicity or national original, veteran status, disability, or other classes protected by law. Anti-discrimination laws help ensure that potential and existing employees are treated fairly and with dignity and respect. These laws also help maintain a workplace where all employees can work, remain productive, advance, and develop to their fullest potential. Still, discriminative practices of the past continue in subtle ways and have created a workforce that is not as diverse as it should be. Affirmative action refers to a set of practices designed to correct the trends created by past discrimination. It is important for you to understand what affirmative action is and how it may apply to you and your organization. This course has been prepared with these objectives in mind.
