Since the Harvey Weinstein scandal first erupted several months ago, the list of high-profile executives and public figures who have been accused of sexual harassment continues to grow.  In the wake of these stories there has been a change in expectations from a focus on protecting companies and preventing litigation to a focus on ending harassment.  To truly end workplace harassment, experts agree that not only must companies have strong anti-harassment policies in place, but there also must be a clear message that everyone is accountable, even top-level managers.

Now is the best possible time to revisit employment policy best practices and ensure that your managerial employees are properly trained in workplace etiquette and how to respond to harassment allegations.

At this presentation, we will discuss the most recent legal developments int he area as well as considerations in re-visting your personnel policies, reporting and investigation procedures and on-site training options.
