Be proactive of the #MeToo movement and make sure your company is educated on sexual harassment and discrimination issues related to Illinois Law.

The #MeToo movement has brought new light to sexual harassment issues within our culture and the workplace. Almost weekly there are new claims of sexual harassment against high-profile individuals and companies. This has resulted in the EEOC and employers seeing more complaints of sexual harassment and an increased willingness by employees to file charges and make complaints.

As such, it is critical for companies and management to make sure that their policies and practices are up-to-date and proactively take steps to address these issues in order to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees. Additionally, taking these steps can help reduce liability and defend against claims of sexual harassment and discrimination. Ultimately, what this means is that companies must be proactive to educate themselves and their employees regarding sexual harassment and discrimination.
