Employer Liability Issues With Supervisor Harassment

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Learn about the latest employment liability issues associated with sexual harassment.In today's workplaces, employers are faced with significant challenges in light of the #metoo movement. Today, employees are coming forward with complaints - but which complaints constitute sexual harassment and what should an employer do when they receive a complaint? Because sexual harassment can come in all forms, and from many different parties, it is important for employers to understand their potential liability for sexual harassment by employees and how to recognize and respond to sexual harassment. Important mitigation efforts will include informing employees about what sexual harassment is and how to report it, while supervisors and managers must be given the training and tools to identify sexual harassment in the workplace. For HR professionals, investigating a sexual harassment complaint is a tedious and documentation heavy adventure. Throughout this material, we will talk about everything from the basics of what constitutes sexual harassment from a legal perspective to best practices to limit employer liability for sexual harassment and retaliation and conducting an effective sexual harassment investigation.
