With all of the news of sexual harassment and misconduct that exploded in 2017, employers are faced with a greater responsibility to get their workplace into compliance and to properly address complaints. Changing workplace cultures require a deep look at existing problems. It also requires having uncomfortable conversations. This session will explore how employers can limit their liability for harassment by setting the proper tone and having infrastructure in place that protects employees.

We will discuss the following topics:

  • The underlying reasons for sexual harassment
  • The importance of training management
  • Understanding the legal consequences
  • Holding employees accountable
