When Employees Cross Professional Boundaries: How to Detect, Prevent Grooming. Prevent Liability and Train Staff to Identify Inappropriate Relationships with Students

School districts are often faced with situations involving staff who text with students, communicate on Facebook with students, and have students over to their house.   While the behavior is troubling, HR officials sometimes are uncertain whether such conduct warrants discipline, or whether they even have the legal right to impose discipline.  This workshop will help HR officials distinguish between situations involving poor judgment, and likely “grooming” behavior that often precedes actual child abuse.  It will also provide guidance on how to develop appropriate policies, train relevant staff, conduct investigations, determine appropriate discipline, and avoid liability.
