Sexual Harassment and Bullying in the #MeToo Era
October 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In the wake of #TimesUp and #MeToo, the business world continues to reel over the seemingly shocking realization that sexual harassment is even more pervasive than most had imagined. This movement has forced employers across all industries, including construction, to grapple with the real worry that sexual harassment may be problematic in their own workplaces. Victimized employees, too, are coming to realize that they are not alone. Those who have been harmed are building camaraderie with kindred spirits and may now have the courage to report harassment in light of so many others who are doing the same.
Especially in today’s business environment, you should continue to be vigilant in your quest to eradicate harassment in your workplace. Finding new and innovative ways to accomplish this goal is admirable. However, you should thoroughly evaluate your processes and procedures, ensuring that the tools you implement provide a sufficient mechanism to allow you to investigate and promptly correct incidents of harassment.

This webinar will layout the policies and procedures required by employers to ensure that their employees are not exposed to a hostile work environment and that issues are dealt with promptly.
