In the wake of the growing number of sexual harassment scandals, the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace has become a major concern for all employers. Time Magazine has even epitomized the situation by naming Silence Breakers their Person of the Year.

Employers who ignore their responsibilities to deter and investigate sexual harassment complaints and enforce their anti-harassment policies run the risk of huge financial loss and damage to their brand and image.

Please join Offit Kurman’s Labor and Employment attorneys, as we discuss the essential steps an employer should take to prevent and remediate sexual harassment in the workplace.  Topics to be covered include:

  • Policies companies should have to protect their business and its owners
  • Whether business owners are liable for sexual harassment charges
  • Employee training on how to behave in the workplace and what to do if they discover or witness sexual harassment
  • HR and supervisor training on how to handle sexual harassment allegations
  • What to do if a sexual harassment allegation or charge has been made
