Quarterly Legal Webinars
Next legal webinar: You & #MeToo, Best Practices for Agency Management on Preventing Claims & Avoiding Legal Liability
May 22, 3:00 pm EDT
As we are sure you are all aware, the issue of harassment in the workplace has dominated the headlines for the past two months. It seems like every day a new story is published with respect to allegations of workplace harassment. #Metoo has become a social media and cultural phenomenon. Every day, more and more employees are coming forward to share their stories to draw attention to the issue of workplace harassment. According to the EEOC, the number of harassment inquiries that it has received in the past two months has more than doubled the year-to-date total. We do not expect this trend to change any time soon.
In light of the constant media focus on workplace harassment, it is critical that you take the steps necessary to protect your business from potential liability.
This NAILBA Webinar is designed to help employers get a basic understanding of what constitutes harassment (hint: it’s not just sexual harassment!), how to prevent claims, how to investigate and handle claims if and when they arise, and how to avoid legal liability. We will discuss the difference between harassment and merely an unhappy workplace, what constitutes an effective harassment policy, and how to implement prompt measures to remediate harassment. We will also address frequent mistakes employers make when handling claims of harassment, which include issues of retaliation. Register here.
Each quarter, NAILBA will host a free member webinar with an attorney from our partner, Norris McLaughlin & Marcus. These webinars will include 30-minute presentations followed by Q&A with an attorney who specializes in that practice area. This advice can keep you from having to contact your legal counsel, saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars. There is no cost to participate in these webinars and they are open to all staff of NAILBA member agencies. Each webinar will last approximately 45-60 mins. Each webinar will be recorded and available on demand.
