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

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

KATHARINE BATISTA

Katharine Batista is a Labor & Employment attorney that assists her clients when deciding issues like: If my employee has exhausted her FMLA leave and remains out, am I required to hold her position open? Can I terminate my employee for testing positive for marijuana? Will this non-compete agreement be enforced? She helps her clients answer these and similar questions, and vigorously defends their decisions. She represents businesses, such as restaurants, hotels, banks, retailers and health care providers, in the spectrum of employment and labor claims. Specifically, Ms. Batista successfully defends employers against claims of discrimination and harassment, retaliation, wrongful terminations and wage and hour violations. An employee’s post-separation conduct often requires legal advice and action too. Ms. Batista commonly represents her clients in bringing actions for breach of restrictive covenants and contractual interference, as well as defends them against such claims. Employment and labor law is ever changing. Employers need to feel secure in how they manage their employees so they can focus on their business. Ms. Batista affords her clients that security
