Event Description:

Understanding and Preventing Sexual and Other Unlawful Harassment

Presented by 
Marc R. Engel, Attorney
Lerch, Early & Brewer, Chtd.

The workshop will focus on the issue that is on everyone’s minds – sexual harassment.  Specifically, the presentation will focus upon the following:

  • what unlawful harassment is and is not;
  • when, why, and between whom harassment can occur;
  • why all employers, regardless of size, need to understand and take appropriate measures to address this issue now more than ever;
  • the importance of harassment training for all employees;
  • what issues should be covered for training to be effective;
  • the importance of understanding the related issues of bullying, tolerance, diversity and professionalism;
  • practical and cost-efficient measures employers should take to prevent harassment claims (including creating/updating handbook policies);
  • the extraordinary costs (i.e., financial, reputational, legal, and otherwise) associated with harassment and a work environment that is perceived to be unprofessional and intolerant;
  • related insurance issues; and
  • strategies for defending harassment claims if they are made.
