Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT
Sexual Harassment scandals and the publicity of them are not new. So what is different with the movement we are experiencing today? High profile celebrities and athletes are sharing how they suffered sexual abuse combined with a social network platform. The recent headlines have reignited the #metoo movement creating a network effect that has given victims of sexual harassment and abused the support and encouragement to have a voice and stand-up. Increased allegations, settlements, and litigation support that this movement will continue to disrupt and promote the need for change nationwide.
So what does this mean for employers? It means that it is not enough to say that Sexual Harassment is not tolerated. Employers must make more of an effort to show zero tolerance for harassment and that they care about protecting their employees. During this webinar we will discuss:
- Why the recent publicity of sexual harassment and abuse has put employers in the crosshairs for potential claims.
- Recent lawsuits applicable to your industry
- Increased scrutiny of employer harassment practices and proposed law changes
- Understanding the legal definition of sexual harassment and best practices for handling both harassment and unprofessional behavior
- Recommended immediate actions you need to take
