If you think workplace harassment claims are a thing of the past, think again. Harassment claims in the workplace remain among the most difficult and insidious issues facing employers. A quick review of the EEOC’s website reveals harassment claims continue to abound at an alarming rate. Some polls suggest that as many as one in three women have experienced sexual harassment at work by a supervisor or co-worker. As employers, it is important to provide a safe and diverse workplace, free of the sort of disruptions that can lead to morale problems and lost productivity. Moreover, defending harassment claims is expensive on many levels.
At our 2013 Employment Law Seminar, we addressed harassment policies in the context of establishing effective employee handbooks. Above is a short video clip of last year’s presentation. This year, Carl Habekost will dedicate an entire presentation to harassment and retaliation training. If you have not registered for the seminar, you may do so by clicking here. We look forward to seeing you on September 25, 2014 at the Levis Commons Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg.
