Instructions for Preventing Employment Discrimination

As you know University policy states that discrimination in the work place, or in the educational environment, is unacceptable conduct. Further it is counter-productive to our concept of a great University.

To help all employees gain a better understanding of what constitutes discrimination and how it can be prevented, UM Human Resources has developed an online Preventing Employment Discrimination Training program designed to educate employees about this highly sensitive issue. Our expectation is that every employee should take this training.

Please provide each of your employees (whether faculty or staff) with the following directions which will take them to the myHR applications page where they can access the online discrimination training module. This is in the same location as the Preventing Sexual Harassment Training employees took last year.

  1. Go to https://myhr.umsystem.edu/psp/prd/?cmd=login
  2. Log in with your User ID and Password
  3. Click on “Self Service” on the menu
  4.  Click on “Personal Information” on the menu
  5. Click on “HR Training – PED” to commence the training.
  6. After reading the Chancellor’s letter select “Continue” at the bottom of the page.
  7. On the page labeled “Preventing Employment Discrimination,” select the version of the training module that is applicable to your relationship to the University (e.g.,  Supervisory or Non-supervisory)
  8. Follow the directions in the training module to move through the entire module.
  9. Complete the Mastery Test. You must score 80% to pass the test. You may re-take the test as many times as needed to master the information. No record is maintained of how many times you take the test.
  10. Once your test score is 80 percent or above, please complete your personal information located at the end of the test and click the button below to create the certificate and record your results.  The certificate may be printed and kept as part of your personal records, however, you do not need to send a copy to Human Resource Services.
  11. You may need to disable pop up blockers to view this training.

Please encourage your employees to review the program to ensure that they are well educated about, and fully understand the issue of, discrimination and how it affects the work environment.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Assistant Vice Chancellor Karen Touzeau, touzeauk@missouri.edu.
