The attorneys in Pullman & Comley’s Labor and Employment practice offer a wide variety of training programs tailored for executives, managers, human resources personnel and individual employees. Each program can be customized to address your organization’s unique objectives and complies with applicable law.
Some of our most popular training sessions include:
Sexual Harassment Prevention and Anti-Discrimination Training
Connecticut law requires that all employers with three or more employees must provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all employees. This training complies with the state’s requirement and is customized to the organization. The training also includes an interactive discussion with attendees using numerous real life examples.
In this training, we educate management staff on how to communicate more effectively with employees, properly discipline when necessary, draft and conduct employee evaluations and deal with legal and personnel issues when they arise.
