Workplace harassment claims have been on the rise as more employees come forward with allegations of inappropriate and potentially unlawful behavior at various levels of their organizations. Managing a company’s response to such claims often requires navigating complex business and legal issues. In this seminar, we will cover:
- Examples of challenging harassment incidents that may arise in the workplace;
- Best practices for investigating and resolving such incidents; and
- Steps for handling employee complaints while effectively managing business and legal risks.
In addition, our “Quick Takes” will cover recent employment and benefits developments, including:
- Federal tax law restrictions on the deductibility of settlement payments in sexual harassment cases;
- New York City laws that expand the use of sick time and permit employee requests for temporary schedule changes; and
- U.S. Department of Labor’s guidance on internship programs.
