The #MeToo movement continues to impact workplaces across the nation and around the world.  Employers now, more than ever, need to effectively respond to claims that arise.

In the second of a two-part webinar series, Leslie Silverman, former Vice Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Shareholder at FortneyScott, and Nita Beecher of FortneyScott and Workplace HR will discuss best practices for investigating and resolving complaints of sexual harassment, including:

  • Selecting the right person to do the investigation;
  • Maintaining  confidentiality;
  • Handling uncooperative witnesses;
  • Applying effective, appropriate discipline; and
  • Managing dilemmas and “sticky situations.”

This webinar will build upon lessons from Part 1, which provided an overview of sexual harassment law and best practices for preventing sexual harassment.  The webinar is geared for all employer representatives with responsibility for workplace and EEO compliance, including human resources, legal, compliance, inclusion and diversity, and related functions.
