The NCBA is partnering with Jackson Lewis on this webinar. In this interactive hour-long session, we will look at the brief history of the #metoo movement and how it has changed the landscape of harassment claims in the workplace. The program will include a refresher on the law of sexual harassment, but will focus primarily on best policies and practices for employers. We will discuss the importance of:
- Modeling appropriate behavior at the top of the organization
- Adopting meaningful anti-harassment policies
- Training workforces on these policies
- Conducting a swift and thorough investigation if a claim is made
Who should attend: upper level managers and human resources professionals.
