Understanding Harassment & Discrimination at Work

May 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am


Understanding Harassment & Discrimination at Work

Healthy and productive workplaces require a foundation of tolerance and respect for each other. Ideally this would happen naturally, but sometimes there needs to be education about what is both acceptable and legal when it comes to employee interactions. Every employer is required, by law, to provide a work environment that is free from harassment and discrimination…but what does that look like or sound like from day-to-day? This interactive workshop teaches the technical details of laws that protect employees from these actions and also how to help prevent such behavior from happening in the first place. It also teaches employees and employers how to handle harassment and discrimination if/when it occurs.


This workshop will be facilitated by Jennifer Jacobs (Human Resource & Management Consultant, EAP Counselor, Workshop Facilitator)

Jennifer owns and manages THRIVEeap. She has lived in Windham County most of her life and has a deep connection to the community. In 2014 she took over the former practice, Consultants for Workplace and Family Health, and transformed it into THRIVEeap. Jennifer very intentionally chose the word “thrive” for the work that the company does. She firmly believes that with the right resources, support, and opportunities, anyone can “flourish, grow, and prosper.” She is committed to helping others do just that, by increasing access to mental health support through Employee Assistance and making places of work the best they can be.
