    Topic: Breaking Down Barriers to Employment

    Description 

    Barriers to employment tend to be socially counterproductive and can serve to discriminate against minorities, women, persons with disabilities and older employees. Learning about these barriers and how to remove them promotes equal employment opportunity in the workplace. This presentation will review general barriers that inhibit equal employment opportunity and give suggestions and ideas on how to create a diverse, productive, and harassment free workplace.  

    Objectives

      • Describe the general barriers that inhibit equal employment opportunity
      • Explain how to eliminate barriers to employment
      • Develop a plan to recruit and hire that is free from barriers to employment
      • Understand compliance issues with the ADA and interviewing/hiring
      • Understand compliance issues with Title VII and interviewing/hiring
      • Develop ideas and plans that would create a harassment free workplace

      Transfer and Refund Policy

      Can't make it? Would you like to transfer an upcoming registration from one event to another or can someone else from your office attend in your place? Substitutions are allowed; however, the non-member rate may apply. Requests for transfers must be made at least seven days in advance, as BGSHRM pays the venue based on the numbers of registered attendees. Please submit your request via email to communications@bgshrm.org. No refunds or transfers of fees will be made after the date of the event.

      Generally, all payments for membership dues and registration to BGSHRM events are non-refundable. However, if an event must be rescheduled (i.e. severe weather in which travel is prohibited or impractical) OR you are unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. family emergency), we will apply your payment to a future event which can be requested by emailing communications@bgshrm.org. This request must be sent prior to or within 7 days of the event. Because BGSHRM pays the venue based on the numbers of registered attendees, we cannot refund you for your registration if we do not receive a cancellation request in advance.
