Course Description
EEOC & ADA: What Supervisors Need to Know


Discrimination is an issue that has profound ethical, legal, and personal implications for any organization. This course discusses the types of employment discrimination including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Equal Pay discrimination, Age discrimination and the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Armed with this information, you will be better able to identify and to deal with discrimination in the workplace.

Before diving into the specifics of EEOC & ADA, you should know that this topic is part of a larger set of skills often referred to as “soft skills” in the world of business. “Hard skills” are the technical expertise you need to get the job done. For example, an engineer needs to understand how to build and understand physical systems - this is an example of a hard skill.

In general, soft skills are interpersonal competencies which play a very important role in professional success; they help you to do your very best while working in an environment with many individuals who come from diverse backgrounds and take part in very different job tasks.

Because of the need to manage different opinions and interpersonal styles, the difference between a good supervisor and a great one often boils down to a person’s competence with soft skills.
