Since the rise of the #MeToo movement, employers are facing increased challenges – changed employee expectations, allegations of “old” harassment or renewed attention to previously “resolved” claims, and a heightened attention to such things as bullying, off-site conduct, and workplace romances.
Join our panel of Hogan Lovells lawyers for a discussion on what’s new in this area, as well as some of the thornier issues employers have long faced, including:
- What constitutes harassment in the first place, and should employers be concerned about conduct that is not legally prohibited?
- When alleged harassment occurs, who should investigate, and how do employers know when an outside investigator should be brought in?
- What if an alleged victim does not want to cooperate?
- Are an employer’s obligations different when a high-level manager or executive is accused?
- How do you impose corrective action without over or under doing it?
- In addition to policies and training, what best practices can help improve a workplace culture to prevent harassment?
The panel will take place on April 26, 2018, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. in Hogan Lovells’ Washington D.C. office. Registration, networking, and a light breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. CLE credit is pending.
Kindly RSVP by April 23, 2018.
We look forward to seeing you.
