#MeToo and #TimesUp: Preventing and Addressing Harassment in the Workplace
Presented by
Fred Bissinger, Regional Managing Member, Wimberly Lawson

Preventing and addressing harassment in the workplace has been a challenge for decades.  However, given the very public harassment issues that have consumed the news over the past 6 months, as well as the resulting #metoo and #timesup movements, combating harassment has taken on a whole new level of significance for employers.  This presentation will focus on the relevant historical issues, as well as the best practices for preventing harassment.

Objectives:

  • Discussion about the most common mistakes made by employers when dealing with harassment claims.
  • Analyze the most relevant training points for your supervisors and managers with respect to harassment.
  • Analyze the best practices that help minimize harassment claims and the resulting liability exposure.
