Harassment Within the Workplace


Be prepared to respond to harassment complaints in a way that complies with applicable laws and minimizes risk.

This presentation will discuss significant developments in defending workplace class action litigation in the areas of settlement, arbitration, certification, and the effect of government enforcement. The speakers will analyze class action and collective action rulings involving claims brought against employers in all 50 states, including decisions pertaining to employment-related discrimination and harassment matters. We will review significant developments from 2022 and suggest what to expect in 2023 and beyond. This course is a definitive source of information on the trends in litigation and legislation regarding discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
