Addressing Sexual Harassment Claims After #MeToo
Thursday, April 19, 2018
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm CST

Registration fee is $225.00 per connection

Program Description:

In recent months, the news has been rife with reports of public figures accused of sexual harassment. In the wake of these scandals, the #MeToo movement exploded on social media, with millions of women and men expressing that they have been victims of some sort of sexual misconduct. As a result of these developments, employers, including those in the health care industry, should anticipate an increase in the number of sexual harassment claims. 

This program will examine the legal standards for actionable claims of sexual harassment and explore ways that employers can minimize the risk of those claims. It will also address other significant business issues, including negative publicity, morale problems, and employee retention difficulties, that may result from sexual harassment and other forms of gender discrimination in the workplace.   


At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate the types of behavior that can subject employers to claims of sexual harassment and understand the legal framework for such claims
  • Identify ways to minimize employers’ liability for potential sexual harassment claims
  • Discuss the non-legal concerns that can result from sexual harassment and gender discrimination in the workplace and explore strategies to address those issues
