Sexual Harassment and Bullying in the #MeToo Era
October 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In the wake of many recent high-profile sexual harassment claims, it is a certainty that your employees and their attorneys, as well as the Government and the press, will be re-focusing their attention on these important issues. Harassment, as well as bullying, can quickly go viral and cause devastating results both inside and outside of the workplace. Knowing where the line exists for illegal harassment and bullying, what to do when faced with “he said/she said allegations,” and how to promptly and effectively respond to these allegations, are just some of the challenges facing employers in this day of heightened scrutiny. This presentation will explore recent developments in the areas of harassment and bullying in the workplace and will discuss practical issues and solutions aimed at keeping your company out of the courts and out of the news.
