Name: Breakfast Briefing on Workplace Harassment: What Every Business Needs to Know
Date: February 20, 2018
Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST
Event Description:
It seems that every day you look at media headlines these days, you hear a new story about sexual harassment. Your employees are seeing the same stories. With this heightened level of interest in these cases, and the emboldened feeling that many now have to report unprofessional behavior, you have never been at greater risk to face a harassment charge. Not only is harassment a legal risk for your organization, harassment in the workplace lowers morale, decreases productivity, and can cost you good employees. Now is the time for you to ensure your organization is providing a workplace free of offensive and harassing behavior.

Fisher Phillips invites you to attend an important breakfast briefing, centered on the issue of preventing harassment in the workplace. We will provide you with a clear-cut 5-step plan to ensure that you are doing everything possible to provide a safe and comfortable working environment while minimizing your legal liability. Join us to learn about the impact of allegations, identify steps the company leadership can take to manage and respond, and best practices to proactively minimize the occurrence of allegations in the future.

Discussion will include:
Managing sexual harassment as a subset of workplace bullying
Applicable law and Human Resources policies
How to conduct an investigation
Aligning corporate values and culture
Reputation management and crisis communications
