Addressing Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace May 1, 2018, 2:30pm EDT

In this timely and informative seminar, we’ll discuss workplace discrimination and harassment – including sexual harassment.

You’ll learn about employer liability under federal law, as well as the elements required to establish an affirmative defense to harassment claims.

We’ll also discuss key elements of a sound non-harassment program, such as management practices designed to eliminate workplace conduct that is otherwise malicious, abusive, hostile, or offensive, regardless of protected categories.

Finally, we’ll go over specific policies and procedures – for handling complaints, investigations, and retaliation – that can help protect your employees and your business.

This webinar is a part of the 2018 National Small Business Week Virtual Conference.
