Responding to a claim of sexual harassment in the workplace is one of the most difficult things you will encounter in your career. Sexual harassment claims can:
- Severely undermine working relationships
- Reduce productivity
- Expose the employer to investigations or enforcement actions by administrative agencies like the EEOC
- Expose an employer to time-consuming, costly and damaging litigation.
An employer’s response to a claim of sexual harassment is crucial to reduce the likelihood of an investigation by an outside agency or a lawsuit. View this webinar, which will empower you to be both proactive in preventing harassment in the workplace and reactive in properly responding to claims of sexual harassment to potentially shield your employer from liability.
