It’s been a year since countless stories of workplace sexual harassment started making headlines, and new data suggests the number of harassment complaints and lawsuits won’t be declining any time soon. And while many HR experts predicted sexual harassment claims would rise, the EEOC’s numbers now back this up. It’s clear from the EEOC’s data that the issue of sexual harassment isn’t going away. To encourage employers to keep improving anti-harassment efforts, the Commission is working on new guidance on the topic, which hasn’t been updated in 20 years. But while we’re waiting on that guidance the questions remains what can be done to prevent sexual harassment in your workplace.

In this webinar Expert Susan Desmond, where she will discuss about harassment policy and new theories of sex discrimination and help employer’s to avoid retaliation claims. We are learning that sexual harassment occurs at all levels in the workplace and that it is still a huge problem. Now is the time for all employers to reassess their policies and procedures so that they are vigilant about sexual harassment compliance and about protecting their employees.
