Why Should You Attend:

With increasing media coverage and attention focused on sexual harassment, organizations need to be prepared for an increasing number of employee complaints related to this sensitive topic. Any time there are complaints associated with policy, procedure or law violations, employers must conduct thorough, effective internal investigations.

Sexual harassment can take many forms, and handling these types of complaints can be particularly sensitive in many ways. Learn the moving parts associated with these kinds of complaints and how to conduct the subsequent investigation that have to be approached effectively and swiftly, such as including recognizing potential problems that might need to be investigated, taking in complaints and interacting with employees who may have experienced this type of harassment, identifying and interviewing potential witnesses, recommending actions and making decisions that protect the organization and its employees, and communicating with those who have been accused of and/or who have exhibited harassing behaviors, and more.

  • Recognizing what constitutes a sexual harassment complaint and triggers the obligation to investigate
