Sexual Harassment: What Employers Need to Know About the “#MeToo” Movement (Part 1 of 3 part series)

We’ve all read about how sexual harassment claims are receiving increased attention in the workplace, by enforcement agencies, and in the media. The call to action spurred on by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements shine a spotlight on the effectiveness of a company’s compliance programs, policies and culture. To minimize the risks of facing harassment claims and related criticisms and publicity, employers should audit their practices to ensure they are well positioned to identify, address, and if needed, defend against, sexual harassment allegations. This includes having robust anti-harassment and anti-retaliation policies, effectively distributing them through the organization, and training on their use and implications. Learn how to do all this and more to best position your company going forward.

Join us for this timely webinar, the first in a three-part series addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. In this first hour, our presenters will provide an overview of legal risk areas and begin the process of discussing steps employers should take to educate their workforce to prevent harassment and protect the organization from liability, including setting out examples of employer best practices. This is a can’t-miss series for today’s modern business.
