Fundamentals for Sexual Harassment Cases

Learn the fundamentals of sexual harassment cases including investigations, charges, and lawsuits.

Sexual harassment claims present a significant challenge for employers nationwide, especially in light of the ongoing #MeToo movement - which has encouraged more employees to come forward with harassment complaints than ever before. Legal professionals advising employers must be aware of not only the myriad legal issues involved in sexual harassment cases, but also the many practical considerations that come into play when responding to and investigating harassment complaints by employees. This material will detail the most important legal issues implicated by sexual harassment claims, including recognizing different kinds of unlawful harassment and the ways in which employers may incur liability for such claims. This material will also discuss how to conduct effective investigations into sexual harassment complaints to place employers in best position possible to defend against resulting charges and lawsuits.
