Defending a single harassment claim could bankrupt your association.  A discrimination lawsuit could prompt donors and sponsors to back away. Plus, long before actual charges are even filed, a negative environment can take a serious toll on productivity and member and staff retention.  Clearly, harassment and discrimination are risks you simply can’t afford. But how do you manage them?

First, make sure you understand how today’s state and federal laws define workplace harassment and discrimination—and where associations often go wrong. Then, put the right policies and training in place.  If claims or lawsuits do arise, be ready to minimize the chances that things will escalate. 

Here’s where to start…
