Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: What Employers Need to Know

How can sexual harassment in the workplace be prevented? The law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP will host a webinar for employers on Wednesday, Dec. 13 to explore best practices.

 
“It’s difficult to ignore the sexual harassment allegations being brought to light throughout Hollywood, the political arena and other corporate settings,” said Pamela C. Enslen, a partner in the firm’s Kalamazoo office and a co-presenter. “As more victims come forward, it becomes apparent that harassment is happening every day, and employers are tasked with greater responsibility to protect their employees.”
 
Louis C. Rabaut, a partner in the firm’s Grand Rapids office and co-presenter, added: “Revisions to policies, employee manuals and trainings are a must. But employers are wondering where – and how – to start.”
 
The hour-long live session starts at noon and will cover:
 
  • An overview of recent high-profile sexual harassment cases that have ended the careers of politicians, celebrities, sports figures, journalists and business leaders
  • The new online complaint intake system from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC
  • What workplace policies should include
  • The importance of live training
  • When to involve outside counsel
  • How to conduct a proper investigation
  • If a non-harasser manager can be held personally liable for failing to take action
