Upcoming Events


Preventing Harassment in the Workplace

December 12, 2017 - Jacobetti Complex, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm.

Workplace harassment can be costly to your business resulting in lost productivity, turnover of staff, and time-consuming and possibly expensive claims.  Complaints of sexual harassment have become almost commonplace in Hollywood, the media, and Congress. You are invited to join NMU's Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department along with Human Resources Consultant, Ruth Solinski and Attorney at Law, Laura Katers Reilly, for an informative session to learn how you and your staff can prevent harassment from occurring, how to investigate and respond effectively to complaints, and how to reduce your organization's liability. 

Registration is $45.00 per person. A 10% discount will be offered if four or more attend from one organization.  To register, please call the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department at (906) 227-2103.
