Many employers grapple with how to respond to allegations of sexual and other unlawful harassment. The law not only requires prompt remedial action to deter future unlawful conduct, it also requires employers to protect employees from retaliation for making a report of harassment or discrimination. That holds true even if the employer cannot confirm the complaint.

A thorough review of the law and the requirements can provide employers with successful tools to assess discipline, create effective work rules, and train managers on how to resolve issues before they go too far. Please join us for this 60-minute webinar as we discuss how to handle allegations of sexual and other unlawful harassment and train managers and supervisors to identify, report, and react timely to potential misconduct.
