Registration deadlines fast approaching!

Published on January 13, 2014 by Donna Seale

Registration deadlines are fast approaching for a number of my upcoming courses for 2014. If you haven’t already registered, please sign up soon to reserve your spot!

You can access all registration information including fees and location by downloading the Course Registration form.  Here’s a quick look at what’s coming up:

How to Investigate a Human Rights Complaint – registration deadline February 4, 2014

Course dates: February 19 & 20, 2014, 8:30am to 4:30pm

This two day workshop assists supervisors and human resource professionals who are frequently confronted with having to investigate a human rights complaint in their workplace.  Union representatives who wish to learn what to expect when their members are the subject of a workplace human rights complaint investigation will also benefit from this course.  You will be guided through the investigation planning process, interviewing techniques and the gathering and evaluating of evidence during an investigation.  Participants in this workshop will work through case scenarios and conduct mock investigations.


The Duty to Accommodate in the Workplace – registration deadline February 13, 2014

Course date: February 27, 2014, 8:30am to 12:30pm

In order to ensure a workplace free from discrimination, employers have a duty to reasonably accommodate the human rights protected needs of their employees to the point of undue hardship.  But what is “reasonable accommodation?”  How can it be achieved?  When is “undue hardship” reached?  What are the latest developments in the law pertaining to the Duty to Accommodate?  Attend this 4 hour session to learn the answers to these questions, and more.


Harassment in the Workplace (Employee version) – registration deadline March 6, 2014

Course date: March 20, 2014, 9am to 12pm

As members of the workplace, employees play a critical role in helping their employers achieve a harassment-free environment not only through how they conduct themselves at work but by knowing how to deal with harassment if it happens.  This half-day course is designed to provide employees with a thorough primer in the law relating to workplace harassment including what “workplace harassment” is, who is liable for harassment in the workplace and why, what retaliation is, what employees can do to support a harassment-free workplace, and steps employees can take if they believe they are being harassed.


Harassment in the Workplace (Supervisor version) - registration deadline March 13, 2014

Course date: March 27, 2014, 9am to 4pm

More and more, employers are being held legally responsible for ensuring that their employees are provided with civil and respectful workplaces.  As the eyes and ears of the workplace, managers and supervisors play a critical role in achieving a harassment-free environment.  Managers and supervisors need to understand the legal principles that form the basis for their employer’s liability and their own personal responsibility to prevent and respond to workplace harassment.  This interactive full-day course is designed to provide those in supervisory roles with the core knowledge and skills needed to appropriately address harassment in the workplace.


I hope to see you out!

Human Rights in the Workplace – 2014 Course Offerings

Published on December 12, 2013 by Donna Seale

After months of preparing and planning following the flood of responses I received to my Course Survey back in September, I am excited to announce the list of courses I will be offering in 2014.  These are in-person training events for now.  I am still in the planning phases of the webinars I intend to offer in 2014 and hope to make an announcement about those soon too.

I will be self-hosting my training courses for the first time and am pleased to be partnering with the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg in order to make all of this happen starting in February.

Please see my Course Registration form which includes detailed descriptions of the courses I will be teaching, when they will be held and course fees.  Please note the registration deadline that applies to each course and keep in mind that I limit registration for all of my courses to keep the attendee size small enough for me to provide training that is attentive as possible to the needs of those who choose to come and learn with me.

If, in addition to yourself, you know of people who might be interested in or benefit from the training I’m providing, I would encourage you to get in the spirit of the holiday season and share!

To each and every one of my readers, I wish you much joy throughout the holidays and extend my hopes for your health and happiness in the New Year.
