Sexual harassment. How many times did you hear that phrase prior to the last two months? Then came the allegations against Hollywood moguls; actors; TV, radio, print and media personalities, politicians and others in workplaces around the globe, and suddenly the topic is front and center. Some are describing it as a sea change in attitudes and tolerance levels towards behavior that falls within the realm of sexual harassment. The subject has entered our national conversation at an unprecedented level, but have the rules themselves changed?

This program delivers a no nonsense, common sense discussion of what's okay, what's not. It is divided into two one-hour segments: the first hour consists of training for all employees; the second hour is intended for management and it will address how to reduce risk and liability.

The webinar will cover:
  • What is "sexual harassment"?
  • Elements of a sexual harassment claim
  • Unwelcome conduct
  • Verbal and physical conduct
  • Sufficiently severe or pervasive
  • Which creates a hostile or offensive environment
  • Employer liability
  • Supervisor liability
  • How to handle sexual harassment complaints
  • Policies
  • Investigations
  • Actions
  • Training
  • Special issues
  • Settlement issues
Who Should Attend:
First hour: all employees. Second hour: Senior management, HR, inhouse or outside counsel.
