The absolute best way to ensure that your business remains compliant with employment laws, positions your business or government to defend claims, and maximizes productivity is to properly train all employees and, in particular, your supervisors. At N. Stotler Law, our Pittsburgh employment lawyers have extensive experience creating and delivering training related to discrimination, sexual harassment, discipline and discharge. Let us help train your employees today. We specialize in employee and supervisor training for those in and around the central and western Pennsylvania areas.
In Pennsylvania, every employer must provide sexual harassment training for every employee and supervisor in order to comply with the state and federal laws and court cases. This training should be interactive and conducted for all new employees. Annual training in this area is expected. This training should include helping employees understand what sexual harassment is, why is it is prohibited, and what to do if employees experience or witnesses sexual harassment in the workplace.
Employers in Pennsylvania are prohibited from discriminating against an applicant or employee based on that person’s:
It is important the employees and supervisors know how to handle potential issues of discrimination and that employees who make a claim are not retaliated against.
Whether or not your employees are union, civil service, contractual, or at-will, it is important that you implement proper disciplinary and termination procedures. Both employees and supervisors need to understand the disciplinary process (i.e. a certain number of verbal or written warnings, suspension policies, etc.). If an employee is terminated, supervisors need to know how to properly document the reasons for the termination to prevent possible legal action.
Every employment situation is different. At N. Stotler Law, we have experience working with both private and public sector employers. We understand that the employee and supervisor training for a municipal public works or police department will look different than the training at a manufacturing facility.
