Sexual Harassment: Quick Tips for Avoiding Liability

With the #MeToo Movement and the media’s laser focus on sexual harassment, now is the time to educate yourself and avoid potential liability in the future!

Join us for a Breakfast Briefing where we will discuss some pertinent questions regarding sexual harassment liability, such as:

  • Should my business have a “zero-tolerance policy”? Can I discipline short of termination – e.g, training, take away bonus?
  • Am I liable if one of my employees is being harassed by a customer or prime contractor?
  • Should I conduct a harassment investigation in house or use a third party?
  • Who should I believe in a he said/she said situation?
  • What sort of due process do I owe the accused employee?
  • What if the person claiming harassment is a poorperforming employee? How do I avoid retaliation claims?
  • Do I need to have a policy on workplace dating between employees
  • Are “off-color” jokes enough to create a hostile work environment?
