We are all faced with making decisions every day. Some are large and some are small. When we’re faced with a decision that involves right and wrong choices at home or at work, sometimes it's hard to figure out what's the best decision in a given situation.

By the end of this program, learners will not only be aware of and be able to recognize ‘sticky’ situations that can cause problems - they'll be better prepared to do the right thing.

This program provides easy-to-understand situations that help all employees tackle the "oh" workplace ethics events that they might encounter throughout the workday.
Each of us has a moral code. Sometimes that code is very clear to us. We may know we wouldn’t steal a jacket from a store or that we wouldn’t violently harm someone else. Sometimes, though, we aren’t quite as clear about how we’ll respond, especially when we’re caught off-guard and don’t have a lot of time to think about our response. We may want to please the other person, or we may think the other person won’t like us if we don’t do as asked.
Being a target of quid pro quo sexual harassment creates a workplace that's toxic. We all have the right to work in an environment free of harassment. Sexual harassment affects all of us, directly or indirectly. If not addressed, sexual harassment will create a hostile work environment that can lead to an expensive lawsuit.
Bullying is repetitive, aggressive behavior. It can be physical, verbal, or social...and creates an imbalance of power through intimidation. Abusive conduct or bullying behaviors can include...pushing, shoving, or invasion of space, persistent, repetitive insults, teasing or taunting, constant criticism, rumors, humiliation or ridicule. These behaviors should never be tolerated. This unacceptable conduct can bring your entire team down. When one person is bullied, it creates stress for the target along with other team members who might witness the behavior.
Under federal law, discrimination based on sexual orientation is illegal. In several states and local jurisdictions, there are laws which provide additional protections from harassment and discrimination based on perceived - as well as actual - sexual orientation. And if this kind of behavior happens in one of those places, coworkers may very well end up on the wrong side of a hostile environment harassment lawsuit.
Third party sexual harassment is a form of sexual harassment that occurs when someone who is not an employee of the organization, such as a customer, client, or vendor, harasses an employee. This can create a hostile, offensive, or intimidating work environment for the target of the harassment, and affect their performance, well-being, and rights.
When it comes to inappropriate workplace comments (even joking and innuendo), sometimes it takes voicing your objections to the person more than once before they get the message. The idea is to be consistent. Each time that their behavior crosses the line you must confront them. Now, if you don't feel comfortable confronting them, document each incident and then go to human resources about the situation. This type of behavior is unacceptable.
Whether subtle or overt, discrimination based upon race is illegal. This video situation shows an employee who felt they were targeted or assigned specific territories (red lining) because of their race.

Do your employees/staff/leaders know the subtle differences between inappropriate, unprofessional or illegal workplace behavior?
