Advanced Concepts in Sexual Harassment:  Beyond the Basics

Presented by Greg Currey of Wright, Constable & Skeen, LLP

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, employers should be taking steps to ensure that their workplace policies and procedures are effective at combating and remedying sexual harassment.  This seminar will cover the basics of what is, and what isn’t, unlawful sexual harassment and present best practices to ensure that your workplace policies, training and investigation procedures are up to date.  We will also discuss practices to prevent retaliation claims from employees reporting sexual harassment.  This seminar will also touch on the below conversations: 

  • what  constitutes sexual harassment under the law – a compliment by one person can be taken as an offense  by another. A light touch of friendship can be interpreted as intrusive and a violation of privacy …and
  • how much can you really control people’s words and actions anyway? (policy and procedures)
  • how do you recognize violations of the laws (what  sexual harassment and is not under the law) , and
  • what do you do to try to prevent their occurrence, (policies and procedures- written and spoken/management/culture ) , and
  • what if an employee makes a complaint?…
  • How do you conduct the investigation so as to get the facts without abridging any rights or raking laws…and
  • How do you try to fix things without incurring a charge of Retaliation?
