Antisemitism is never acceptable. However, recent remarks by celebrities, athletes, and news networks have made antisemitism seem more commonplace, in all facets of life, including the workplace. Title VII makes it illegal to discriminate against someone based on, among other things, religion. However, this is one of the protected categories least understood.
In this 60-minute webinar, FELTG Instructor Katherine Atkinson will explain these Title VII protections. Ms. Atkinson will also provide guidance on how to ensure that individuals in protected categories are not discriminated against, with a specific focus on harassment and discrimination against Jewish employees.Attendees will learn how to:
- Recognize incidents of religious harassment, particularly those aimed at Jewish employees.
- Promptly correct harassing behavior aimed at an employee’s religious beliefs.
- Understand when an agency would be liable for religious harassment.
