The fall of 2017 brought much attention to sexual harassment in the workplace.
As legal counsel to small, medium and large employers, we saw an increase in the number of employees filing sexual harassment complaints. We also saw an increase in the number of employers contacting us to inquire about proactive measures that can be taken to prevent sexual harassment complaints and reduce employer liability if complaints are made. As 2018 begins, we expect the spotlight on sexual harassment in the workplace to continue and employers should be prepared. Our Employment Law Group can help your company manage and reduce the risks of sexual harassment by:
- Drafting anti-sexual harassment policies and employee complaint procedures
- Providing sexual harassment training to employees at all levels
- Assisting with investigations of sexual harassment complaints
- Defending the company against sexual harassment claims in legal proceedings
If you would like to discuss how we can assist your company with this important issue, please contact a member of our Employment Law Group.
