Despite its well-known illegality, sexual harassment continues to linger in the workplace.
News stories of alleged sexual harassment and the resulting costs to companies are all too common. As we have seen, not even the news organizations themselves are immune. A prime example is the recent and enormous Fox News settlement involving Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment claims against the company’s former CEO, Roger Ailes. 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:
• 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
