Everyone knows that sexual harassment is illegal. Yet, big headlines of sexual
harassment in the workplace continually pop up in the news. One thing is certain, sexual harassment claims, whether against powerhouse corporations (e.g. Uber, SoFi), the news organizations themselves (e.g. Fox News), or any other employer, can result in costly settlements or judgements. With so much at stake, it is imperative that companies understand what constitutes sexual harassment, the scope of their potential liability, and ways they can prevent and defend against sexual harassment claims.

Webinar topics to be discussed include:
• Federal and State laws prohibiting sexual harassment
• Types and examples of sexual harassment
• Sexual harassment by supervisors and vicarious liability
• Preventative action – the written policy
• Proper investigation of sexual harassment claims
