The recent wave of high profile sexual harassment allegations has suddenly and dramatically intensified the discourse over sexual harassment in the workplace. No industry has been left untouched - actors, producers, journalists, politicians, entrepreneurs, and executives have seen their behaviour take centre stage in the press and on social media. While the societal impact of these highly public cases is still playing out, one lesson is clear: sexual harassment in the workplace can have serious reputational and legal ramifications for accused individuals and companies. Lawyers counseling clients on workplace behaviour must therefore have a solid knowledge of the law relating to sexual harassment, and also an awareness of cultural shifts taking place in the workplace. Now more than ever, employers and boards of directors must clearly understand what is and is not appropriate for the workplace, and take proactive measures to prevent sexual harassment, and to respond appropriately to allegations when they occur. Whether you are advising employers or employees, serving on a board of directors, or reviewing your own firm’s policies, this 90 minute webinar will provide practical information in response to common workplace sexual harassment questions. Don’t get left behind in this evolving area.

Live webinar with chat, includes 30 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
