Reducing Risks for Employers in the Aftermath of the “Me-Too” Movement Workshop

October 2, 2018 at 7:30 am EDT

Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Bill O’Reilly and others have galvanized the #MeToo movement and compelled responsible employers to learn how to reduce, if not eliminate, potential costly claims of workplace harassment. Employers need to proactively educate their employees on what to do to prevent workplace harassment and how to react in the face of such complaint if one arises in the future.

Employers should be asking their selves:

  • What are you doing to optimize communication channels to make each employee comfortable in reporting any inappropriate workplace behavior?
  • Exactly how should you communicate your workplace policies to your team?
  • What can you do to significantly reduce the risk of costly claims being made against your company in today’s litigious environment?

Join us for our complimentary workshop to hear practical advice on these questions and more, from both a legal perspective and from a communications perspective. The interactive workshop will be led by Howard Kurman, a nationally recognized employment attorney and co-founder of the mid-Atlantic regional law firm, Offit Kurman, and Keith Scott and Rebecca Klein Scott, both principals of communications firm TALLsmall Productions. They will conduct an interactive workshop to provide Maryland C-Suite executives with proven strategies to effectively reduce the likelihood of a “Harvey Weinstein” incident arising in their respective workplaces.
