Sexual harassment has exploded in front-page headlines. Is your organization next in line for a bombshell #MeToo complaint?
The old HR rules for preventing and confronting harassment charges have changed. If you are still relying on 20-year-old prevention, training and complaint policies, you could be in a world of trouble.
Discover how to update your policies and practices to stay in compliance and to create a culture of respect in your workplace.
Our expert attorney will walk you through today's new legal risks – in plain English, not legalese. Discover the new best practices for preventing, investigating and remedying sexual harassment in the workplace.
Most important, learn how to develop a program that will not only meet compliance requirements, but also change employees' behavior. Behavior change is essential – and your boring check-the-box training and slow investigation processes aren't going to cut it anymore.
Fact: After eight years of declines, the number of sexual harassment complaints filed by employees with the EEOC rose in 2018 to more than 7,500. And the EEOC recovered $70 million through enforcement, up from $47 million in 2017.
Today, employees are feeling much freer to come forward, sometimes with decades-old accusations. You may have a sexual harasser on your payroll – possibly a serial one. And the first complaint will open the floodgates to a PR, social media and legal disaster. Are you ready?
Join your peers to discover the changes you need to make today to stay in compliance and out of the headlines.
