Sexual Harassment - The New Landscape
Date: January 17, 2018Register Now
For years, the number of sexual harassment cases has gotten smaller due to years of efforts by HR to address such matters. Suddenly, however, all that is changing due to a number of high profile sexual harassment situations. What makes these recent claims high profile are the C-Suite level individuals who allegedly have done the harassing. Companies suddenly are having to defend or distance themselves from their leaders, and the resulting news as well as social media could re-generate sexual harassment cases at all levels.
Virtually every HR professional knows the basic laws surrounding sexual harassment and the risk associated with prohibited behavior. In the last year, however, with scandal after scandal filling the headlines, including financial publications such as Barron's (see November 6, 2017 article Tipping Point Sexual Harassment Emerges as a Serious Investment Risk), there is a highly elevated risk to every organization and increased scrutiny of the issue.
So, what can an organization do to address and prevent this new wave of sexual harassment from affecting its brand, its culture and its pocketbook? The answer varies – C-Suite issues and C-Suite prevention need to be handled differently from lower level issues of hostile work environment. Culture, however, needs to be assessed at all levels. IAML has set up a webinar to help you work through these matters. This webinar will be presented by Gavin Appleby, a seasoned employment law expert, partner in the international law firm of Littler Mendelson, P.C., and a very highly-rated veteran IAML presenter. Gavin will provide a quick refresher on the applicable law and specific steps that every organization should take to audit and properly apply its sex harassment policy, procedures and training to ensure that they are not only in compliance, but represent "best practices." In addition, the webinar will address the thorny issue of how HR can handle problems emanating from managers, including the C-Suite, settlements, and non-disclosure agreements.
We are confident that you will find participating in this webinar to be well worth the investment, regardless of your level of experience.
