A spokesperson said, “On Tuesday, June 29th, the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce will host the second of a two-part series of Lunch & Learns for Human Resource Professionals. The topic of this webinar will be “How to Identify Sexual Harassment and Bullying in the workplace.”

“The Employment Amendment Act 2021 outlines various updates to the Employment Act 2000. Amendments include [but are not limited to] a notable Sexual Harassment and Bullying section which were required to be added to all existing employee handbooks by June 1st 2021.

“The second part to the series will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, June 29th at 12:30pm and will feature Annette Eve, Training & Policy Officer from Performance Solutions Limited where she will give Human Resource professionals a deeper understanding of how to identify and address sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace.

“This presentation is designed and geared towards mid to senior level Human Resources professionals and those involved in updating their company’s employee handbook and/or employee contracts.”

Kendaree Burgess, Chamber Executive Officer states; “Workplace sexual harassment and bullying are popular topics of discussion for anyone running a business in 2021. Sometimes these offenses are obvious to spot. However, they can also be more covert and difficult to identify.

“Ms. Eve will help us work through these not so obvious scenarios and give us tools to deal with these sometimes complex issues in the workplace. Many of our members have expressed an interest in learning more from industry experts about these topics as they navigate their own company policies. The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping local businesses thrive; connecting them with industry experts is just one step in doing so.”

Course fees are: $25 for members of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, and $50 for non- members. To register, visit The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce website at www.bermudachamber.bm. For more information email ndyer@bcc.bm.”
