Respect Gets Respect – Prevent Sexual Harassment and Bullying is the topic of a Feb. 24 workshop in Truckee.

North Lake Tahoe and Truckee Donner Chambers of Commerce, and Sierra Human Resources Association is putting on the anti-bullying, sexual harassment seminar. It is from 9-11am at Truckee Tahoe Airport Community Room, 10356 Truckee Airport Road.

The requirement to provide anti-bullying training for supervisors and managers was added to AB1825 sexual harassment prevention training as of Jan. 1. This workshop will bring businesses into compliance and help business owners and leaders prevent and address “abusive or malicious conduct” that a reasonable person would find hostile or offensive, including repeated infliction of derogatory remarks and insults, threatening, intimidating or humiliating verbal or physical conduct and the sabotaging or undermining of work performance.

This interactive workshop will also cover the core skills of recognizing and stopping sexual harassment. Workshop speaker Laura Moriarty, president of Tahoe Training Partners, is a nationally known speaker and the architect of innovative learning environments at high profile organizations.
