B-WEST Regional Workforce Training Center. Building Workers Entering Skilled Trades. Employer Training Guide.
Portland Community Coll., OR.
This guide, which was developed during the B-WEST (Building Workers Entering Skilled Trades) project, includes materials for use in training and providing on-site consultations to contractors, managers, supervisors, office/technical staff, and others in two areas: diversity in the workplace and sexual harassment in the workplace. Part 1, which deals with managing a diverse work force, is divided into two sections. The first section includes the agenda and instructional materials for a presentation on what managing diversity entails, values that shape attitudes toward business and work, work force issues, the changing business climate, and sensitive issues in the workplace, and the second section contains a workshop plan and handouts from a published training guide. The first half of Part 2 consists of text, a 33-item bibliography, and a sexual harassment awareness test excerpted from a published training guide; the second half consists of excerpts from a 1992 employer's guide to preventing sexual harassment that was developed by Oregon's Governor's Office of Affirmative Action and Executive Department. Included in the guide are the following: prevention program components; sample policies and procedures; and information on employer liability, supervisor and manager obligations, retaliation, handling complaints, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidelines.
