This short course covers the continuum of legal definitions of harassment on the one hand and civil workspaces on the other. Includes a discussion of the characteristics of civility, based on the work of Dr. P.M. Forni of Johns Hopkins University. It will provide an historical perspective on laws and statutes regulating employment and prohibiting discrimination, and review trends and patterns in court cases about employment discrimination and harassment.
For a more thorough coverage of these and related topics, students are advised to sign up for the three-day course, Diversity Issues in Human Resources.
