Why Harassment, Discrimination, and Compliance Training is Important
The expense of one sexual harassment claim, discrimination claim or FMLA/FSLA compliance violation can be considerable--not only in the dollars associated with defending the claim, but also in lost time, productivity, employee morale and damage to your brand. Companies without strong training programs are at even more risk as courts typically award punitive damages in sexual harassment and discrimination cases where the employer failed to provide sufficient training.
Dickinson Law training programs can help protect your company against costly harassment, discrimination and retaliation claims. Today you need effective training that does more than just prevent discrimination and harassment lawsuits. Our training will help you create a healthy workplace culture; protecting against the bigger costs of lost productivity, turnover, and brand damage caused by uncivil behavior associated with harassment and discrimination.
Training Built on Experience
Our unique blend of corporate and legal experience elevates our training program above the simple check the box efforts with which you are familiar. The attorneys of Dickinson Law's employment and labor group draw on over one hundred years of combined experience in legal, corporate, and training experience to produce training that works.
One senior attorney has a graduate degree in Industrial Relations, another attorney worked in Human Resources for some 16 years before attending law school and has both SPHR and Senior Certified Professional designations. In addition, Dickinson Law also employs a former U.S. Department of Labor (non-attorney) with 33 years of FLSA, FMLA, and David Bacon Act compliance experience.
You will be hard pressed to find such another combination of skills available in Iowa.
