Why Should You Attend:

Complaints of sexual and unlawful harassment have been exploding with allegations being made against top executives like Harvey Weinstein and Steve Wynn. Could this happen in your organization? Sexual harassment is an issue that has been at the forefront of a social revolution (the “MeToo” movement) that has global implications. Whether you are a small local company or you have offices around the globe, the issue of sexual harassment is one that you undoubtedly will face and you need to be prepared.

The prolific number of #MeToo complaints still dominating the news and taking down powerful leaders from many industries has exposed workplace sexual harassment that has often been ignored, condoned, and hidden.

Topic Background:

In the U.S., all employers are obligated to maintain a harassment-free workplace for their employees at all times. “Sexual Harassment” covers unwelcomed sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Although the law requires employers to maintain a harassment-free workplace, there are currently no federal laws which require employers to provide employees with Sexual Harassment Prevention Training. Various state laws, such as those in California, do require periodic training in sexual harassment prevention.
