Hot Off the Press-Breaking News: Sexual Harassment is Unlawful! . . . REALLY?!? Where have these people been?

You can’t read the news today without encountering article after article describing workplace assaults and harassment in business, entertainment and politics. Have these people been stuck in some sort of time capsule? Sexual harassment is old news that shouldn’t be news to anyone in today’s world. So why all of the sudden attention and multimillion dollar settlements? One simple answer – poor leadership. Companies today (as before) can ill afford to ignore this evergreen topic. HR must set the tone and lead from within. This session will discuss recent trends and preventive measures to keep your company off the front page.

Key Learnings:

  • The EEOC’s definition of harassment—what it covers, what is doesn’t cover;
  • Why neglecting to address a complaint can cost an employer hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars and reputational damage; and
  • How to break a culture of complicity and toleration through ongoing training and assertive leadership.

Around the country, state and local lawmakers are increasingly focused on equal pay, with the goal of eliminating the persistent wage gap between male and female workers. California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, and New York have enacted wide ranging equal pay legislation. Multiple cities, including New York City and Philadelphia, have passed laws prohibiting employers from asking applicants about their pay history. Other states and localities are considering similar legislation and the existing statutes have already been expanded. These new laws will increase the risk of equal pay and pay discrimination claims. We will address the requirements associated with this new wave of anti-discrimination legislation, explore how to evaluate compliance, and discuss best practices for mitigating risk.
