Summary:

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that constitutes an unlawful employment practice in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This statute prohibits employment-based discrimination on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin or sex in all aspects of the employment process, from recruiting through termination. As the result of a 2006 Supreme Court ruling, plaintiffs need not prove that they have suffered an ultimate employment action, such as involuntary termination, to file a claim of retaliation after filing a discrimination complaint under Title VII. Employers and employees need to understand the implications of Title VII in the workplace environment.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education module is to update the ability of nurses, dietitians, fitness professionals, health educators, respiratory therapists, social workers, athletic trainers and physicians to recognize and deal with sexual harassment and retaliation on the job. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legislation as it relates to sexual harassment
  • Describe the standard for retaliation under the law

Revise it. There was information that was left out that may one feel unprepared for the test. The test asked questions that were not covered in the program.
