Sexual Harassment – It’s Not What Your Preconception Is

The traditional notion of sexual harassment is man-woman. That’s no longer the case!

Even if your company has all female (or all male) employees, the need for training is still critical (and in California, mandatory for businesses with 50 or more employees).

Update your training – or start your training – right away.

The Pitfalls of Layoffs

If you need to layoff employees, make sure the criteria you use is both consistent and business-related. There is a huge potential for accusations of discrimination when laying off employees.

Also, note the differences between a ‘lay-off’ and ‘termination’.

A lay-off is done for business reasons and it means the elimination of a position(s) that will not be re-opened again (or at least for a very long time).

A termination is a specific action against a specific employee. The position will be filled again.
