New Course from ChildCare Education Institute on Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Duluth, GA, July 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an online child care training provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is proud to introduce PROF107: Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace to the online child care training course catalog.In this era of "MeToo" and "Timea??s Up", people are becoming increasingly aware of institutionalized sexual harassment. While these two movements helped bring womena??s struggles in the workplace to the forefront of peoplea??s thoughts, neither movement pioneered sexual harassment awareness.A  The a??MeTooa?? and a??Timea??s Upa?? movements brought to light a huge gap in peoplea??s understanding of what exactly is considered sexual harassment. Many things that previously may have been considered commonplace or acceptable are now understood to be inappropriate and a violation of policies against workplace sexual harassment.There are two forms of unlawful sexual harassment in the workplace. They are quid pro quo and hostile work environment.A  Quid pro quo is the most universally recognized form of sexual harassment, however, a hostile work environment occurs the most, often going unreported. This is due to the fact that quid pro quo harassment often feels easier to prove in the eyes of the law, where people may find justifications for actions that create a hostile work environment.While sexual harassment has two categories under the law, there are five types of conduct that may constitute sexual harassment. They are gender harassment, seductive behavior, sexual bribery or favoritism, sexual coercion, and sexual imposition.A  When it comes to conduct that violates policies against workplace sexual harassment, it doesna??t just end at face-to-face interactions. Electronic sexual harassment is becoming increasingly common as technology grows, it currently includes emails, cell phone calls or texts, internet or intranet posts, online comments, blog posts, and social mediaThis course is designed to help early childhood education staff to better understand conduct that will violate policies against workplace harassment. Participants will learn what sexual harassment is, what some of the laws are, what to do if they feel they are being harassed or witness harassment, and how to prevent such conduct from occurring.
