It certainly has been an interesting few months in the world of sexual harassment.  Whether it is a salacious report emanating from the Hollywood scene or a scandalous tale involving an executive from a Fortune 500 company, it seems that new claims of inappropriate conduct surface every day.  

While the recent allegations of sexual harassment have involved highly visible people and industries, the reality is that employers of almost every size  and type are at risk for a messy sexual harassment situation.  The good news is that employers are not defenseless in the fight against sexual harassment claims. In fact, prudent employers can dramatically reduce the likelihood of a nasty sexual harassment dispute by taking five specific steps in the supervision of their employees and the management of their organizations.

Please join us for this insightful Seminar as we will discuss:

  • The critical components of a harassment prevention program
  • The steps to take in response to a harassment complaint
  • The landmines to avoid in your harassment investigation
  • How to close out a harassment claim quietly and effectively

The seminar will begin at 11:45 am. and end at 1:00 pm.

As always, there is no charge for our seminar. We hope to see you there!
