Workplace bullying is on the rise. While federal and state laws protect individuals from harassment and discrimination based upon age, race, sex, religious preference, disability, and national origin, the law is fairly silent relative to direct protection against workplace bullying. Without clear legal protections, what can be done about bullying? How can ADR mechanisms help remedy a problem that seems to have expanded beyond the control of the traditional HR department? You will learn practical ways you can develop processes to better address these bullying and harassment claims as well as dispute resolution best practices you can implement in your organization.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Monday, June 17, 2013 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm
