These days all it takes is one disgruntled employee to lodge a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). And, once that complaint is lodged and an employer has found itself on the losing end of litigation with the EEOC…the end result is a Consent Decree, or settlement agreement that outlines the employer’s obligations to “right” what the EEOC states the company has done “wrong.”

Many corporate attorneys will engage in negotiations with the EEOC on how many years will be included in the Consent Decree, in which an employer will be obligated to provide a specified number of contact hours of training or meet other legal requirements.  In our experience, some employers have been required to  provide training on an annual basis for two, three, four, or possibly even five, consecutive years.

Whenever an employer finds itself obligated to comply with a Consent Decree, there is usually only a short window of time to begin identifying a training professional to meet the requirements. At RPC, we have experience in this arena and have been delivering this type of training for more than 20 years.

We have seasoned, HR certified training instructors with many years of experience in facilitating EEO and respectful workplace training programs, across all industry sectors. We can provide a qualified training instructor to travel to your location(s) or a designated site to facilitate the training program. Or, we can provide virtual training via Zoom or Webex Training according to your unique scheduling needs.
