Despite guidelines for investigating complaints of discrimination and establishing preventative measures, statistics indicate that employers may not be properly implementing antidiscrimination laws in their organizations. The Praeger Handbook on Understanding and Preventing Workplace Discrimination was written to provide companies with the necessary toolkits to prevent all types of discrimination in the workplace—and to deal with them if and when they occur.
This two-volume handbook offers employers a comprehensive approach to understanding, preventing, and dealing with hostile work environments through an integrated model that encompasses legal responsibilities, management theories and practice, and social science research. Volume one provides an overview of workplace discrimination through an examination of federally protected categories, such as age, disability, equal compensation, national origin, pregnancy, race/color, religion, sex, and sexual harassment. Volume two offers strategies related to "reasonable care" in terms of preventing workplace discrimination through policies, procedures, and training programs.
