Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will hear how to protect their organization from harassment liability. 

While “he said, she said” has turned into “he said, she said and she said and she said” as a result of the #MeToo movement, proving a harassment or retaliation claim under the law has stayed the same. But that doesn’t mean litigation-related issues haven’t changed. During this informative session, our speakers will discuss the most significant developments in harassment and retaliation claims and prevention, from “Weinstein clauses” and new laws limiting nondisclosure agreements to shifts in corporate culture and virtual harassment. Our speakers will also examine the impact of increased media attention, Hollywood harassment trials, bestselling books and Oscar-nominated movies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Receive an overview of the legal requirements and best practices for dealing with harassment in and outside the physical workplace.
  • Discuss the emerging use of “Weinstein clauses” and new legislation limiting nondisclosure agreements.
  • Hear legally required content for your harassment and discrimination prevention policies, recent changes in training requirements and required distributions.
