Why the EA?We provide professional, up-to-date and affordable training, done at your workplace, when it’s convenient for you. Our training is up to date, affordable, interactive, and participants learn practical information and techniques that can be applied at work.
The Case: The cost of unresolved workplace harassment can reach into the thousands of dollars, in the form of expensive lawsuits, loss of productivity, high rates of turnover, potential violence in the workplace, absenteeism, negative publicity, and lack of trust on teams who need to be working well together to get bottom line results.
The average attorney fees to defend a harassment claim (before it goes to court) is $75,000.00. Courts continue to look favorably on employers who revise their harassment policies AND provide up-to-date training for all employees, at all levels.
