It seems a day does not go by that we do not hear about another high-profile
allegation of sexual harassment. Harassment issues in the workplace are certainly top
of mind for many employers and employees. The Equal Opportunity Commission is
also making sexual harassment an enforcement priority. In the past month, EEOC has
publicized four harassment cases, totaling nearly $500,000 in settlement damages.
Now is the time to address risks and take actions before problems develop. In this
seminar, we will cover legal issues surrounding harassment, and suggest preventable
measures employers can implement to reduce and manage the risk of harassment:
• What is a “Hostile Environment”?
• When is an employer liable for harassment?
• What needs to be in a harassment policy?
• How to conduct a harassment investigation?
• Harassment training issues
