Designed for employer representatives who are responsible for managing fair employment compliance, this “online classroom” and self-paced course provides practical guidance on how to investigate and respond to a charge of unlawful harassment, discrimination, or retaliation filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or a state or local fair employment practices agency.
Through a combination of self-paced online modules, weekly one-hour web sessions, video clips, and online discussion forums, this program focuses on practical and proven steps for managing all phases of the charge investigation process, from initial receipt and response through final resolution or referral of the case to litigation.
